I've noticed that every time I solve a problem (aka, I have to view the problem in order to submit), I lose rating. Can the brilliant staff fix this bug?

Sometimes after solving a problem, i notice that the rating of the problem also changes.

I am also losing rating even though i solve the problem correctly.
It is not a bug, but the intended behavior.
It is intended that clicking to view a problem to answer it results in an initial drop in the rating. If you solved a problem correctly, your (net) rating will increase.
Sometimes, even when I solve a problem correctly, my rating drops.
I find this feature annoying. As I go through a feed, I open up a "Solve" tab for every problem I find that looks interesting, so that I can go between the problems easier (and not forgot which ones I was working on). Also, sometimes a problem is not fully shown in the feed, so I have to click the Solve button to see it.
What is the motivation for this feature? I think losing rating for getting a problem wrong is good enough.
However, I would like to say that I really like this new rating system overall. This particular feature is the main thing I don't like about the new system.
Yes, but every time I solve a problem (correctly), I still end up losing rating (this may have been the case yesterday though; didn't really test out today)
