This user asks a question and 30 secs later I go to check out his/her profile only to face the 'Page not found' error.

What is the explanation behind that?

  • Oh, never mind. The link in the question has become inactive. I guess he was deleted or something.

Yup, the user deleted themselves. Why? Who knows.

  • "User deleted themselves". Wait, we can't delete our accounts on our own, we need to contact the SE Team for deletion of accounts. What am I missing? Or, did the user contact them soon after asking the question and the SE Team fulfilled the request extremely quickly? That would be a bit bizarre if happened!

  • @Aditya It's listed as a self-deletion without help from anybody else. It's probably a circumstance unique to new users without any reputation.
