    $\begingroup$ "Reputation without upvote". Sounds like a line from a T.S. Eliot poem. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Jul 12 '17 at 17:44
  • $\begingroup$ What the poem's title? $\endgroup$ – Narasimham Jul 13 '17 at 5:15

The answer you linked has one upvote and one downvote, which gives a total score zero, but positive net reputation gain. (Since upvote is +10 and downvote is -2.)

Any user with at least 1k reputation points can see breakdown of the score into upvotes/downvotes simply by clicking on the score.

You can see this also on the timeline of the post https://math.stackexchange.com/posts/1410520/timeline, where you can additionally find out that this answer received an upvote today and a downvote on May 8.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, probably the fastest way to see the number of upvotes and downvotes i clicking on score - timeline, reputation breakdown, reputation tab, etc. are useful if you want more information. $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Jul 12 '17 at 8:05
