user deleted their own account or deleted by admins?Page 1 of 1    
I had been emailing back and forth with someone for quite a while last night when all of a sudden my inbox with emails from that person were gone. I checked my sent box, same thing. I did a search to see if her profile was still there and it said user closed account...but I was reading through the forums and it seems that if a user closed their account some messages would still show up. Any idea what might have happened because it caught me completely by surprise...

If POF delete a user, a name search will not turn them up - if you're getting 'user closed account' then that is what happened.
Why? who knows, it's happened to me a couple of times - I've ceased to be surprised by anything on the internet!

That's what I thought since it did say user closed account, but it didn't make sense to me because all messages to and from this person were gone.
I was definitely surprised because it happened so quickly...mid-conversation so I don't know why but, oh well I guess.

If all the messages disappeared, she was deleted by the site. Still being able to find the name through a username search will happen if that exact name was ever used before by another profile and the owner of that profile deleted themselves. So what you're seeing on the username search could have been a profile that was deleted years ago.

Is it possible that I was blocked? Or would I still be able to see some messages if that was the case?

If you were just blocked, only the messages in your Sent box would have disappeared. Any messages she sent to you would remain in your Inbox. You would also be able to find her in a username search without it saying the account was deleted.

If all messages sent and received disappear, she's been deleted by the system.

Help.. I deleted my account coz I cant adjust the initial detail. I am a woman, and not a man and there is advice to cancel and open a new account.
I see by this, that my account has not been deleted, and I cant open a new account because you already hold my email address.. and user names are being rejected.
Any advice????

Above, you could simply create a new email just to make a new account, I know hotmail only takes about a minute to set up an account. If usernames are getting rejected it is most likely because it is unsuitable, or already taken. Hope this helps.

Thank you for the answers Ms Taken, I appreciate it...There's nothing I can do about what happened now but I'm glad I know

I actually do have one more question about this....does the user being deleted have a warning or no?

Yes I do believe there is a warning. It would be pretty hard to accidently delete your account. Hope this helps.

I was just wondering because like I said the user disappeared mid-conversation and there was no indication that something like that would happen....Thanks though :)
