    How did the silly question on passwords get deleted?


    If I had to guess, I would say too many people flagged it as spam.

    If 5 questions get deleted as spam, does the user get deleted as well? (Мечты, мечты, где ваша сладость?)


    It was deleted by user MathOverflow, so it must have been flagged as spam 6 times.


    I may as well 'fess up: I flagged it as spam.

    @VP: No. The user loses some rep if they have rep >1, as I recall.


    And to explain Ben's comment, moderators flagging as spam is the nuclear option: it locks, deletes, and penalizes 100 points instantly.
