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

This user has been suspended until May 11, and that already for quite a while. She made a second account, called sally, and eventually got found out. So as far as I could tell, her accounts were merged.

And now, although she's suspended, she can post again? : R: How to convert and save distance matrix to a specific format.

Not that I mind, I just wondered if that was a bug of some kind, or intentional. Given the quality of her questions, can't really believe she hacked herself an entrance...

Interesting, I don't know when he/she got suspended though. – YOU Apr 28 '11 at 8:41
@YOU : definitely not yesterday, that must have been two weeks ago or so. – Joris Meys Apr 28 '11 at 8:45
Maybe the suspension works only for Registered accounts? Noticed her account is unregistered.. – Shadow Wizard Apr 28 '11 at 8:54
@ShadowWizard : How comes then that I click on the account link, and I arrive at the suspended account? – Joris Meys Apr 28 '11 at 9:10

Doubtful. I suspect she posted as a new user then was merged into the current suspended user.

@Jeff : that's exactly what I said, no? ;) Plus, the merging was done before that last question was asked, because I saw that happen yesterday. Her new question is only 5 hours old. – Joris Meys Apr 28 '11 at 9:09
@Joris, Jeff probably means: posted as yet another new user. A 3rd account (or 4th, ...) that meanwhile has been merged into the suspended account as well. (If true, then maybe the question should have been deleted rather than rewarding the user by merging the question into the suspended account?) – Arjan Apr 28 '11 at 9:40
@Arjan : ah thx, I misunderstood. – Joris Meys Apr 28 '11 at 9:42
But in previous case the extra account has been deleted with all its questions, not merged.. ? (hint: backstabber) – Shadow Wizard Apr 28 '11 at 10:15
Merged another two accounts. Maybe this one should be put in the ban bin. – Won't Apr 28 '11 at 14:53
And another one just now. If I see any more posts by this user, I'm going to be deleting instead of merging. @Will – mmyers Apr 28 '11 at 15:24
