I saw that someone recently deleted there account and I didn't think much of it, until the next day when I noticed I was missing some rep. It wasn't a lot, only 15, but as just a beginner here at B.S.E. every point counts. So I read into it a little more and came across this:
This removal occurs whenever a user is deleted, unless that user had a very high reputation score.
If I remember correctly the person who there account removed HAD a very high rep, so I'm sure other people were affected or am I just crazy?
the staff use a special deletion that preserves the votes, resulting in no reputation change for those who had been voted on by that user.
Ok I'm not trying to blame "the staff" here but I'm just curious is there ever a reason to not preserve the votes? It seems a little unfair to me.
But like some dead guy said
Life isn't fair
