    Hmmm....

    I received early this morning a PM from someone
    asking me how he could close his account.

    He mentioned that his math teacher found his post
    asking for help and was hopping mad at him!

    However, seems he has disappeared: when I tried
    to answer, I got an "invalid link" message...
    plus his PM indicated 0 posts.

    I took care of it last night. That individual has not disappeared; they are still a member.

    I think you got the invalid link message not when you tried to answer the PM; rather, it happened when you clicked the link in their message because that thread has been deleted.

    I received a similar message last night, and I simply referred the user to the "Site Leaders" page so they could contact staff, without waxing philosophical regarding academic dishonesty.

    At MHB, I have seen users post a question, and then delete their OP when the question was resolved...which led me to develop of product that gives designated staff a button to click to easily restore an edited post to its previous state. I also added code that restricts the time allowed for editing of the first post in a thread more strictly than subsequent posts in a thread.
