But can I suggest that when people look at there reputation a (small) amount of points is deducted from this tantra categorie.
And if they look at there points a second time in that day a bigger amount is deducted, 3th time a even bigger amount ...
We (actually our ISP) have been listed on a new extortion, sorry, email blacklist. We're working with the extortionist - sorry! my slip-up - money-grubbing fear mongers who provide no value or protection but rely on people's ignorance - oops, sorry again! - blacklisters to exempt our (and everyone elses) IPs.
It could be that your mail server is either using this new fairy list or it's possible key words in the message triggered whatever anti-spam filters you have in place.
I hope my answer was impartial and measured and that my distaste for those who make money purely off people's ignorance and not from any atual services rendered didn't come through too strongly.

I answered to sql command in code behind C#.net[^] that question.
In my reputation history I can see my answer got accepted and then the acceptation was undone (+25 yay!, -25 ahh...)
I have seen this a couple of times in the last few days, but I've answered more questions than usual, so that might account for me noticing it (or people really undoing their acceptance).
However in this case it seems my answer really IS accepted as it displays in green on the QA page.
There is some difference between this[^] light green and this[^] green.
First green will be displayed if your answer got more than 3 votes and the second will displayed if your answer accepted. So, don't confuse. Your answer might be accepted and later rejected by OP. Still you got 3 votes, so its showing light green.
I dream of a CodeProject Prime membership option, where members pay $100 per year for the privilege of seeing (or not seeing) rep points displayed; this includes access to a secret Prime rep-points forum.
One quirk of Prime membership is that a member can pay for multiple Prime memberships; the member doesn't get any additional benefits, but each Prime membership comes with a bonus 1,000 rep points.
In addition, Prime members will have the distinctive Prime mickey-mouse ears displayed above their member icon.
