da - what can you offer?
This is not quite a rant. Im hoping this is a lot more productive then a rant.
If you have other problems, please let me know, Ill do some research like I did with these and add to it.
PLEASE DO NOT copy / reuse / quote me on other journals / articles or anything - I dont want to get anyone in trouble.
There are a number of accounts that are no longer used by the people that created them. This causes a problem with people who want the names of those accounts for themselves - eg: ember.deviantart.
This also causes false statistics, for instance if someone is "watching" you, but is no longer an active member of DA, you have +1 watcher that doesnt really watch. Also the faves that person may have made are not really valid either.
The positive side is no ones work is deleted / which also means no matter how long your account is unused for
