Why does the network profile (account tab) for this user list the Stack Overflow account twice?

Network profile - accounts

    the fact that the number of questions and answers are different makes me think that this is something to do with merging accounts...? Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:08
  • Yeah, that's what I thought too. But it's a bug right? Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:08

    yep - seems like a bug. Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:09
  • Zombie account - somehow it's still linked behind the scenes. Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:18
  • @ShadowWizard I cannot see the linked user account(!). But if "zombie account" means what I think it does, then .. let's say I'm not surprised. Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:24
  • @Bjørn-RogerKringsjå it's still linked in the Stack Overflow profile as 1 rep account, I don't have magic powers. It means a deleted (dead) account which is still kept alive by being listed. :-) Commented May 30, 2015 at 19:27
  • @ShadowWizard Looks like the issue has been resolved after a flag I raised yesterday panned out helpful. Can you, as a high-rep user, still see the deleted account/bug? If not, should i delete this question? Commented May 31, 2015 at 7:50
  • Weird, now there's no trace for either of the account of Stack Overflow. Commented May 31, 2015 at 8:00
  • @ShadowWizard The account were (yet another) sock-puppet account belonging to a user serving a 1 year ban for voting irregularities. Maybe the zombie account were deleted in the process? Commented May 31, 2015 at 8:08
  • Oh, sock puppet to avoid suspension is a big NO NO, no wonder they're nuked. Commented May 31, 2015 at 9:09
  • -1 for bad question mark drawing. I expect higher quality from your paintings. Commented Jun 1, 2015 at 19:19

This was a merge that threw an error - it will be resolved when the user list falls out of cache over the next ~10 minutes.
