My ratings dropped by one point on two occasion and i was not doing anything wrong just responding truthfully and not breaking any rules could it be that it was caused by someone marking me down or something?

I am sorry to hear that but it also happened to me once i was shocked even though it was by just one point. I was clueless as to the reason why because i never did anything bad but later i realized that its that minus sign after your response that persons use to derate you.
