Right now even stars against [flagged and "deleted" posts](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=418#question) count towards the user's total score. This has no particular effect right now because blanket priviledges are granted to everybody out of the gate (even drive-by spammers), but it will be evident why this is a problem as soon as [voting is an earned priviledge](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=418#question). In that scenario even people who post obvious junk will be enabled to continue abusing the system because the community flagging and cleaning up their mess won't automatically stop them from continuing.
Star counts on flagged posts should be immediately revoked from the user's total. This will cause some consternation when flagging is abused, but conterflagged posts would restore that.
