Today my account was suspended in SO for voting irregularities. I admit, I was abusing (though not necessarily for the rep points) and I deserve the suspension. However, I have a question. The "sock puppet" account was not actually intended to be as such, I started it so I could ask really "dumb" questions without making [the real] me look foolish. Some I found the answers for on my own and have answered them using my real account (Is this ok?). I have also honestly answered other questions for other users.
I have earned a bit of legitimate reputation points on the "puppet" account. It seems as if the two accounts have been merged (Answers posted under "puppet" account are now shown as answered by my real account).
My question is do I get the rep earned from the "puppet" account by legit methods merged into my normal account? For example:
Real account Total rep: 5000 False rep: 2500 Puppet account Total rep: 2000 False rep: 1000
Would merging the accounts result in the real account having 2500 (legit rep for real account only) or 3500 (sum of legit rep for both accounts).
