How does “Reputation” work?

I recently achieved 200 reputation of Stack Overflow (deposit congratulations to the left) and I got a +100 rep association bonus because of my linked account here. Does this +100 count towards my reputation soft cap for the day?

That mentions accepted answers and bounties, but this is a bonus for having more than one account. – David B May 24 '12 at 17:42

No, bonuses are not counted in any sort of reputation cap. They also do not count towards the Mortarboard-class badges where you need to achieve 200 reputation in a single day (whereas accepted answers and bounties do).
