I was voted the best answer on a post - and I was the only one posting. The question was then downvoted and I no longer have the reputation from being the best answer. Is this related? Or did the OP decide he didn't like my answer. Thanks.

  • What question? I don't see any answer that was accepted, but I also see no downvotes. Commented Feb 28, 2016 at 2:03
  • Not this question @JoeTaxpayer. It was on the Personal Finance and Money webpage. Not sure if this is the appropriate area to ask about this, but I didn't want to do it there.

  • That's where I looked. I looked at your profile to see your answers. I didn't see any DV on any answer. Commented Mar 2, 2016 at 15:45
  • Well, I did have an accepted answer, and I swear I'm not crazy. I can't remember exactly which question. it may have dealt with taxes from an alien, but I could be wrong. Either way, thanks for the help.
