So... I've had multiple users turn up on my blog, asking why posts were deleted - which is linked on my SU profile. Some are a little abusive. Another just threatened to hack my blog. I'm not engaging, not replying and figuring they'll go away. It's happened a few times already though.
I'm guessing they're seeing "deleted by Journeyman Geek" (Presumably in the post - though you can also see these in the revisions and timeline views) - going to my profile and decided that my blog was an appropriate place to vent. It's not.
While I can, in theory remove my blog from my profile, it seems a little unfair to subject mods to potential abuse.
Now, I love most of my community and am happy to be accountable to some of them. At the third or 4th troll comment related to my actions as a moderator though, I'm not in the best state of mind.
Could we give our mods and delete voters a little extra safety, and hide from users who deleted their posts?
A few additional points to address comments
users could only see their own deleted posts since 2013. Admittedly this might be a less common problem but before this there was no way a poster could see who deleted it, and there was an audit trail, but not global visibility.
I'm fine with a subset of users seeing it, even a large subset
closures have never been an issue for folks at the moment and have always been public
the goal here isn't to hide who deleted things completely - it's to keep them shielded from folks who think it's fine to try to bully or otherwise abuse them. Admittedly this seems to happen a fair bit to me for some reason :(
I do realise this makes mods 'less accountable' but many of the suggested solutions handle that by adding a reputation barrier for viewing who deleted a post. I also feel that experienced users need a certain measure of safety as much as new users, and a experienced user or mod who abuses deletions can be handled with existing processes.
There's very little to be done after the fact - I'm of the opinion there's very little SE can do for stuff offsite and reporting it gets very little other than sympathy.
Deleting the user might work, since that deletes their posts as community but I do like to give folks the benefit of the doubt sometimes.
