Deleted Users?

Got a question? Can't figure out how to get that neat picture under your user name? Need any other tech tips? Post it here! Also, this is where I make important site related announcements.

Deleted Users?

Post by Calvert DeForest » Thu Apr 04, 2019 10:55 am

Seems lately I'm seeing a lot of posts from "deleted users". I don't recall seeing these in the past. Are these people who have been banned for one reason or another, or have they just canceled out their accounts?

Inquiring mind wants to know.

Yeah they're all from the same user. He creates a new account every month and makes hundreds of posts, then deletes. It really clutters things up.

It looked at one time as though at least one of these 'deleted user' accounts was still posting, but perhaps I was seeing things. Or there's a bug in software?

It would be really cool if there was a "Purge" option to flush 'em.

I guess I don't understand the logic deleting one's own user account. Seems like it would make more sense to just stop posting with that screen name and let it be. I believe M.W. goes periodically reviews the user accounts list and purges those that have gone dormant from the database (i.e. not made any posts over a long period). Why go to the trouble when you can just choose not to post with that screen name?

Maybe to then lurk and watch us speculate?

Simpler solution: delete the delete option.

I always thought that when someone deleted their user account their posts disappeared off the board. Perhaps nobody's done it up to now. Always a new trick I guess. :?

I think he just signed up with the name "RadioDude2001".

Sounds like something he would make
