Change User name, in annos, of deleted accounts

I am very annoyed at giving thoughts to people that don't want to participate but leave traces in annos that force me think of them. Why should they get my mental glucose metabolism?

I propose the user names of a deleted account are searched and replaced with, well maybe Jane or Bob, (in Blackadder a female). Suggestions welcome. Q?

This one, very special, metaphysical user would then wear all truncated annos. I am happy with thinking about a generalised nebulous person having occasional missing conversational losses.

       Ah, OK, as far as I can tell, "annoy" is being used as a noun.

       Sorry, don't know why my brain stuck the y in the annos. Maybe stressing the annoyance.

       Ah.   

       I was about to say "now it all makes sense", but I'd better check.

       Before you do that, have another quadruple gin-and-tonc. That way, even if it doesn't make sense, you won't be worried about it.

       No. He's an interfering arsehole. We damn near had Picard and his rotten little ship the first time, and then he meddled. Git.

       ^ precisely, little meddles from an irreconcilable position.

       This would save us from a lot of confusion. A similar thing is done on Reddit when a user deletes their account without deleting their posts/comments first: those posts/comments display "[deleted]" in place of the username.
