I can add an indefinite number of bookmarks to a question by bookmarking the question, deleting my account, and repeating. Bookmarks are not removed on account deletion. Is this behavior intentional? So if I bookmark my question and delete my account, those bookmarks are permanent?

    I don't think this is intentional, as this can be used to game the Favorite Question and Stellar Question badges. – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Aug 10 '20 at 2:35
  • @SonictheMaskedWerehog Do you think it should be fixed to keep users from farming those badges? It's not really like badges give you extra reputation or extra privileges so is it really necessary? – RevolutionaryDuck3134 Aug 10 '20 at 2:36

    Yes, I think bookmarks by a user should be removed when their account is removed, if their votes aren't preserved when deleting. – Sonic the Curiouser Hedgehog Aug 10 '20 at 2:37
