Well, this is annoying.
Last night some idiot who'd managed to earn the association bonus for his activity on Stack Overflow decided it'd be a brilliant idea to create accounts all over the network and post dozens of comments on other people's posts asking them to take some survey.
Ok, no big deal, suspend him and destroy all these bogus accounts, taking the comments with them.
...oh. Turns out destroying an account doesn't delete the comments. Given the description reads "all content", I'm considering this a bug.
Steps to reproduce
- Find a user that has commented somewhere.
- Destroy it.
- Note that the comments still exist.
Since destroying an account already deletes all posts associated with that account (implicitly taking the comments with them), all that's really necessary here is to remove any comments that might remain on 3rd-party posts. So, do that.
