|I hope this isn't a redundant question, but is it possible for someone else (not admin) to close/delete someones account? This has happened to my friend 3 times now - she goes to log in and is greeted with the message "user closed account" with time and date attached. |
I know she didn't close her account the last time this happened, as she was camping in a field in Dorset with me! If the account was deleted by admin, would a different message come up? She has stuck rigidly to the rules of creating a profile, so I can't imagine why admin would be deleting it anyway. I have gone through the faqs and forums and cannot find any information on this specific problem. Please help, we're very confused!

... is greeted with the message "user closed account" with time and date attached.
PowerBreederUser closed account Jun 21 2007 9:35PM
That User closed the Account himself.
... know she didn't close her account the last time
If the User cannot be found in any Search, he/she was deleted by the Admin/System.
If your User Search shows Account Closure along with the Date and Time, the Account was deleted by a User.
Possibly someone has her POF Login Infos.
Make sure no one has Access to your Password.
If the account was deleted by admin, would a different message come up?
Yes, no Message at all ... you won't be able to find that User in any Search.

|She did create the account on my computer - does that make a difference? After the first 2 times it happened, she made up a ridiculously difficult password, which she didn't even tell me, as she suspected that maybe her ex had somehow found out her account details, but it still happened a 3rd time. She is beginning to look at it as a sign that she is not meant to be on here!|

create an account on my computer
Many Login problems can be resolved by changing/updating your Password.
You mentioned her Ex, I assume you believe he has access to your Computer.
If she failed to shut down her Browser, another User can set up 'Autocomplete',
< Back Button > her Browser and "Auto-Login" under your Name without your Knowledge, depending what Browser you use.
And if your Browser caches your 'Auto-Complete' Settings as shown above, its as easy as 1,2,3 to hack into your Account.
Hence, you should always shut down your Browser when done, and in your
< Preferences > to have all Temporary Files, Browsing History and Passwords & Login Infos deleted at the same Time.
Logging out alone does not prevent the above from occurring, as cached Pages reside on your Computer and allow access to your surfing History.

|No, her ex never had access to my computer but she believes he can "hack" into her account. I must admit, it does seem a bit odd that every time her account has been 'closed', it has happened within 24 hours of her profile being created. It is almost as if he seeks her out, just to delete her profile. They met on pof and he was very bitter and unhappy when they split, and this has only been happening since then. I'm not sure, and I don't like to cast aspersions, but it does seem likely, although I don't know enough about computers to know how he could be doing it.|

Everyone's Ex is a professional Computer Hacker ...
I must admit, it does seem a bit odd that every time her account has been 'closed', it has happened within 24 hours of her profile being created.
As "Trap" mentioned above, if he somehow got a Keylogger or Trojan on her Machine, its quite possible he could delete her Accounts.
Also make sure there is no Hardware Keylogger attached to the Keyboard of
And yet the newest Toy » Keylogger Keyboard
In most Cases, there is more Spookfest than Reality.
"HijackThis" will be able to detect and remove most Keyloggers, since its a Process, a Type of Spyware, no matter how hidden or invisible, running in the Background.
It can snag up Trojans in the same Swoop.
