We recently had this Meta question on Ask Ubuntu which showed that "Mik" had cast a close-vote on one of the questions however his profile wasn't linked. It became clear later on in the answers and comments that Mik's profile is now deleted and hence his name is not linked to his profile.

Another example for same user:

question closed by Mikquestion closed by Mik

But then, why isn't the name of the user obfuscated like it gets done for posts/comments once the user gets deleted?

Why isn't the username obfuscated as one of the close-voters once the user is deleted?
