I have recently seen some answers deleted by the users who had posted them. Do these users keep the reputation points (positive or negative) acquired by these answers just before deletion?

[And is the answer for MathOverflow the same? I'm asking here, so that with some luck I won't have to post the same question there.]

Reputation is currently denormalized.

Thus, if an answer is deleted, the reputation will eventually be removed from the user, but only at the time when that user's reputation is recalculated.

This happens.. irregularly, but can be triggered manually.
