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

There are some entries within post.xml with PostTypeId="2" that have no OwnerUserId. E.g.:

<row Id="40844" 
Body="blah, blah, blah" 
Tags="" />

Can I assume the users was deleted? Or maybe there is some behavior of SO that I am unaware of....hmmm...

That would make sense. Visiting post #40844 reveals that that user was indeed deleted.
