    $\begingroup$ As the answer below states, it was not you who was removed, but some other user who must have upvoted one of your questions. Read here for more information. $\endgroup$ – user642796 Oct 15 '13 at 16:50

You weren't removed. What it means is that a user who had previously up-voted you has been removed. When a user gets removed, all the reputation they have given out is cancelled; from looking at your profile, it seems that someone up-voted one of your questions (giving you 5 points) and then their account was deleted.
