New Profile/Same stuffPage 1 of 1    
I see people canceling their account, and then re-joining with the same username/profile so they come up new. I notice this as their messages to me in my inbox disappear, you search for them in advanced search and they are not there. Then a while later they view me again, I can see them looking and they appear as a new user. Weird but wondering how this is done?

It is quite simple really.

Either they delete their profile or the system/administration deletes it. They create a new profile using the same user name since it is again available. People have been doing that, for various reasons, for years.

It takes a lot for the administrators to block a user name from use.
