Before merging accounts (on Stack Overflow), I got a message:

The account xxx will be removed, and all rep and votes will be transferred to account yyy as a result of this merge. Please click OK to confirm.

But xxx is my main account which is linked with other communities will this pertain if I click OK? Is it possible to do the reverse process delete yyy but keep xxx?

Your other communities are connected to the network account, not each individual profile. Your network accounts also get merged in the process, so any duplicate communities are all merged together, resulting in a single profile for each community connected to a single network account.

It is not possible to do the reverse. Merges always go into the lower user ID.
