Co has closed his account

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
See below, the Co has closed there account, 
 
i understand due to the current situation, this may not be happen soon, but thought this was going to happen ?
 
 GCHQ were doing a sweep and removing accounts and closing inactive owners caches unless they were placed  before year 2004 
 
 EXAMPLE 
-Mail Address:
The "Send Email" feature is disabled because this user is currently inactive.

I'm confused. Are you insinuating that HQ closed the account?

So what's the point other than that a CO closed his account?

It would be good of HQ purged all of the 'bounced' email accounts -- those where messages (of whatever sort) from GCHQ are undeliverable.  It would improve the reputation of the mail servers so that there wouldn't be delivery issues with ISPs that frown on too many bad emails.  Seems they were having issues with that again recently.

As a trial, in two US states, North Carolina and Georgia, Geocaching.com temporarily disabled physical caches  placed after Jan 1 2004, where the cache owner had not logged onto the site,  or posted any log  or more than 5 years.  Where there was no cache owner response, those caches eventually went to archive.

Help Center Article LINKY

 

As an experiment, it seemed to demonstrate that 5 years of no login and no logs is a good indicator of no owner.  As a test of whether new caches would "refresh" where old were archived, Covid-19 made it impossible to draw conclusions.

 

Accounts were not removed.  Accounts with logs of any kind or any owned caches are never removed - unless by specific request of the account owner per  privacy rules.

 

  An account can be disabled by request to stop having emails sent, and I *think* if the email address starts bouncing, then sending email will be stopped, and the inactive account message will appear.  Help Center article Disable account, permanently delete account LINKY

No. The CO has not closed his or her account. They may have abandoned it, but that's not the same thing. 

 

This seems like a preliminary question, so, why do you ask?
