Yesterday, we got a troll post by:

https://www.reddit.com/user/PILEOFDEADLANDLORDS/

Today, we got a troll post by:

https://www.reddit.com/user/BURNINGLANDLORDALIVE/

Yet, if I click on the username to ban it says "Sorry, nobody on Reddit goes by that name."

Are they creating an account, posting abuse and then deleting their account?

Given the similarities in username, I'm guessing it's the same guy who likes to threaten Landlords.

It's most likely that they've been shadowbanned or outright banned by the Reddit admins already.

Well, I did think something like that. However, after I tried to ban the user (I couldn't). I came back later, and the OP had replied to someone. It was automatically deleted.

Shadowbanned makes a bit of sense.
