Takeaway: If removed negative-rep answers don't get ignored during re-calcs, why should removed positive-rep answers?
Over the last year I've "contributed" a great amount of answers to questions - some good, some not so good. Some of the no-so-good answers were downvoted, resulting in a negative rep. And some were upvoted a couple times, for their helpfulness, but ultimately skirted for much better answers provided by others.
I'd like to go through and remove older "noise" that I've contributed. If I remove these older answers which have an upvote or two, do I lose that acquired rep during a recalc? Or do I get to keep my rep gained by helpful (but not accepted) answers?
