There could be a few reasons: even though your posted a good responce, if someone broke the rules and their account was deleted, so was your responce; you posted a one or two word responce to a discussion and it was deleted; people are gving you a "-" for things you posted; your posts are being deleted for breaking mylot rules (e.g. the discussions you are posting are duplicates and they are being deleted).

thank you for the information, i hope that now that i have thoroughly read the guidelines it will happen less, as well as the fact that i dont respond to questions that i cant give a good response to, the only thing we cant control is what you said about others breaking the rules and your response gets deleted with it, it is frustrating to finally see some responses to your discussions and instead of your numbers going up they go down
