Note: I have nothing against this user. I am just trying to shed some light on this issue.

User @One-Eye-Triangle's reputation has dropped down to 1. This change occurred after he/she has posted two answers to this question which got deleted due to it being spams. Each answer got -4 downvotes before getting deleted and these downvotes point should affect his/her total rep. points[final rep = initial rep - 16] and when the community bots deleted those answers, the rep. points went all the way down to 1. Is it some sort of glitch? Or is it a punishment? If it is a punishment, then his/her profile should reflect the suspension notice where the rep. gets locked at 1. But that didn't happen in this case. Where did the rep. points go? Here is the screenshot of the user's reputation graph:

The graph seems incomplete. It is not showing the downfall from ~200 rep to 1. What happened here?
