Contribution Scoring on CF is SHIT

I think the contribution scoring on CodeForces is really messed up. There are no official blogs explaining how it works. Also, the way contribution points increase or decrease really makes no sense. You get +1 contribution point if you get like 5 upvotes and you get a point decreased from your score if just one person downvotes it. Even if someone upvotes it later on and the number of upvotes reaches the same as it was before, the contribution point doesn't go back to where it was. I think a lot of people can relate to this. As I'm writing this blog, I have +5 on a comment and 0 on another comment and yet my score is -1 (The second comment got upvoted and then downvoted and now it's at 0). Can someone explain how the scoring works exactly?
