New user account Automatically Suspended?

earlier today i had someone sign up on my instance and follow me because i am an admin. Before i can view their profile the account is marked ‘Suspended’. I am the only admin/moderator and i did not suspend them, the audit log shows no such action, i did not receive a report. When i checked the account information for the user, there is no email, IP, or last login date.
I am concerned that this may be a malicious database entry that by-passed the account creation process or something; or is this normal behavior if someone makes an account and then quickly deletes it?

Hello, that’s indeed normal behavior from quickly deleted accounts, don’t worry about it :wink:


Yeah, the ‘suspended’ label is also applied to self-deleted accounts.
