I was reading the answer to How can I delete my account?, but I'm confused about a part of it.
Will deleting my account clear any restrictions placed on my account?
Unfortunately, deleting your account while you are suspended by a moderator or rate-limited or banned by the automated quality filter will not remove any restrictions placed on your account. They will simply be re-applied to any new accounts you create.
Note the bolded sentence at the end.
Suppose if I owned an account that was temporary suspended. I delete my account, and everything I earned under that account is lost.
Suppose I create a new e-mail account, and use it to apply for another account on Stack Exchange (for this example, let's assume under the same display name), if a moderator determines that the owner was in fact the owner of an account that was suspended and deleted, can they apply the same suspension to the new account? Or is it new e-mail = new user/account?
You would have to safely determine that the new user is really the previous user, because the display name could be a common name or a popular character in pop culture, and it could just be a coincidence, that you favor the same tags/topics.
I've been referred to this post, but it doesn't answer my question fully. When you have a new e-mail account, and use it to start a fresh Stack Exchange account, can any previous suspension or penalties be transferred?
As the quoted answer states, if you create another account, it won't remove the previous suspension, but it doesn't differentiate between the same e-mail or a new e-mail address for the new account. How does the Stack Exchange rules and system handle this type of situation?
I don't just mean editing your profile with the new e-mail, I mean hitting signup and filling out the fields only with your new e-mail address, so on the surface, to Stack Exchange, you are a new user.
