What does it mean when an answer is submitted by Community? (The example I came across - the screenshot is from the Aviation home page.)

enter image description here

Surely a user didn't answer and delete the unregistered account right away (it takes 24 hours to delete, right?). Is it an answer submitted through the "Contact Us" page?

As far as I can tell, it's not addressed here: Who is the Community user?

What would be the use cases?

I think they did (an Aviation mod needs to confirm); because accounts with very limited activity will be deleted right away, according to the FAQ:

If you have never posted or voted more than once on your profile, your account will be immediately deleted.

That's a bit ambiguous, but the "more than once" bit also pertains to posts.

  • can confirm. deleted 26 seconds after answering – Federico Aug 6 at 9:06
