As a moderator, it can be beneficial for me to know whether or not an unregistered account is "still alive" or has been thoroughly abandoned.
An unregistered user has only a cookie based session, without actual login credentials. So if all of the sessions server-side are no longer valid (which is generally caused by said user not coming back for a long enough period), the account is effectively abandoned, this means that
- User will never reply to comments
- User will never add details to their question
- User will never revise his answer
It can also means content can be edited/closed/deleted more aggressively, because the user in question cannot do it himself (even if they were here and wanted to).
In light of that, can we have a moderator ability to see whether or not a user still has valid sessions and have a chance of logging in to their unregistered account? I know it's not foolproof (as user may have cleared cookies on their side to cause the same effect), but it's "close enough" and will help with 99% of the cases.
