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

Whether or not being able to see deleted questions which I once favorited in my profile is useful or not, I'm not sure of the benefit of being able to see deleted questions in another users' favorites list.

What makes this even more questionable is that I can do this on non-10k users, who can't even see their own deleted-favorites.

Is this behavior desired? I don't think that other users should be able to see actions by me that I can't see myself (in the case where 10k users can see non-10k deleted favorites that they can't see).

"Favourites" is just a mechanism to keep track of a question, almost every time I favourite a question it's not because I like it, quite the opposite really. Just saying... – Yannis Jan 7 '13 at 20:25
@Yannis I know a lot of people favorite a question just to keep track of it, but I think the name favorite suggests that it's a question that you like and thus want to be able to find later easily; that's how I use it, and I think that's how it's intended to be used. – Peter Olson Jan 7 '13 at 20:27
@PeterOlson Ah, the ages old divide between theory and practice ;) – Yannis Jan 7 '13 at 20:30
@Yannis In theory, there is no divide between theory and practice :) – yoozer8 Jan 7 '13 at 20:35
