On the hot questions list, there's a question (this one) which has been asked by a deleted user:

On the hot-questions page, the user is clickable. But leads to a dead link:

It is this url.

Not a major bug, but I thought I'd mention it. A quick search didn't find it already posted.

    Well no wonder it wasn't yet reported, it's very rare. Usually when a user gets so many upvotes and answer they won't go and delete their account. :) Feb 7, 2017 at 8:08
  • @ShadowWizard that's what I was thinking too. you don't get many deleted accounts on the hot list. I think this was because the asker ended up in a edit war on the question (see the question edit history) so I don't know if the deletion what their own choice or an act of moderation.

  • Huh, so weird... wonder how such a thing ended up as hot question. Well, usually moderator will just suspend such a user for a day to cool off, so most likely the user asked to delete their account. Feb 7, 2017 at 8:16
