How do others know that the user has been deleted? This is relevant no matter who deletes
the account. Currently the username gets displayed the same way even if it points to someone
that isn't defined (ie the "someone" user, a misspelled username or a deleted user). That's
because it links to a custom query that always exists.

I think it would be more helpful to show the link to undefined objects in general as grey,
just like we already do with wiki pages.
