Don't be ashamed about your computer. Win 7 with IE9 and FF12 (no chrome tested though) here and having the very same problem. Needing 10-15 refresh to see this forum, the one for c++ or the lounge.
I could not (and still can not) see the boards as usually, so I posted the same problem as new message as well. Just realized that your message is some minutes older than mine.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I am down by almost 20000 points. My total was around 105k and now it's showing 87k. My author points were more than 71k which is now around 54k.
Will we be getting these lost points back? I am really sad now. I am really attached to these
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream. Discover.
It seems the reputation points are less than last month's reputation point (October).
For an e.g, I have written only one article and the reputation points till yesterday was showing 5300+ but now it's showing 4300+ which was last month'point.
It does downgrade the level from gold to silver.
Same applies to other reputation types.
Updated: What is the spam or abusive in this message? I get the reputation points auto deducted and I expressed this clearly.I see -160 points deducted from participant reputation as this message is marked as spam/abusive. Strange! things happening!
Thanks for your time.

Then the only one who can answer you why is the one that deleted your question.
But there may be no specific reason when your question was deleted accidentally (some users here have the power to do so and hitting the delete button inadvertently may happen).
You already posted the question again which is the best you can do in such cases. In fact you already got an answer to the new question while the old one was unanswered (as far as I know, I can't access the old one).
