Disabled accounts show up in "nearby users." I clicked on this profile and then had to click on this username (because, WTF? Was santorum taken?). Well, to make matters slightly weirder, a search for santorum brings up the username and the user's "real" name, though it's no longer visible in the profile.

Yeah I guess we should remove users who have disabled their accounts from the "users near you" feature.

A little warning about the second link would have been nice for this those of us munching on something.

ok, disabled accounts have been removed from "users near you". But we'll leave disabled accounts in the public search.

Since this thread is about disabled accounts anyways: how possible would it be to get a notification in the recent activity sidebar for when one of your contacts disables or reactivates their account?

No, this thread is about santorum. Sorry, Brandon.

Anyone ever notice that if you spell santorum backward, you get murotnas?

Well, more specifically, you get ɯnɹoʇuɐs.

No one looks for santorum. It finds you.
