Does anyone know why certain users get deleted? Answered

Recently, I have noticed that several members have had their names changed so that "Deleted_(insertnamehere)" shows up, their account vanishes, and their profile is inaccessible. Also, I cant find their ibles. Does anyone know why they got deleted, or did they request their account get deleted?

Read the TOS, and use your browser's search (it's CTRL-F for Firefox) for the word "account". There are several stated reasons why in there.

L

e.g. - on your account information:
Instructables has reasonable grounds to suspect that such information is untrue, inaccurate, not current or incomplete, Instructables has the right to suspend or terminate your account
Which would cover the anonymous user you were asking about.

I guess that would be why, but I wonder why anonymous user was deleted instead of banned.

at least keep your account up. Maybe they suck because they are inexperienced. I remember when you were a n00b myself.

SJ, your account didn't get deleted.  The admins changed your name to "Flumpkins".

Adding on to Lemonie's comment. If someone sends Instructables your death certificate, they'll delete your account.
