I've seen something that's bothering me, but I don't know if my loss of faith in good intentions is warranted.
A highly controversial post was made, followed up by a lot of comments, edits and meta posts on one of the sites I like. Almost the same day, the poster of the question apparently marked their account for deletion, and I can see that this happened overnight, because the question now no longer is attached to that profile.
Yet, I was surprised to see that the user now has a new account with an association bonus, and is still commenting away on their original question and it's answers. Which makes me guess this isn't about a question that was disassociated from the account, because why would you then still comment under your original name, and freely acknowledge this was your question?
Now, most of the comments made while this account was apparently marked for deletion to me looked like they were either outright rude, or made to keep the controversy on the main site and meta going. Which makes me think... Could this have been a clever ploy, a way to get a window of 24 hours in which this user could troll the site, without being suspended?
Can an account that's marked by it's owner for deletion, be suspended in the mean time?
