Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A question was asked, and I noticed a user's mini-profile-thingy is showing as if they were a past/deleted user. It looks odd and thought this may be unintentional. Maybe someone can shed light onto why this looks the way it does?

The question was migrated from Stack Overflow. The user doesn't have a profile here yet (unlike most metas, MSO has a separate account/rep system), however he will have been notified by the migration and ought to create a profile for himself soon :)

This is the user's profile on SO.

Btw, a deleted user will show up as userXYZ over there -- the username is reverted to the default during deletion.
