In the first post in the now-locked thread Big Doors during the games..., the space where a username would be is completely blank.  Is there any reason or significance behind that?

I believe that user was banned. The blank space might have something to do with a forum software update at some point.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

It's an account that no longer exists. If you notice, the post from that user is from 2006... longer  before we went to the current forum software.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

The link to the account still works.  It looks like it belonged to Brandon Bridges, who was indeed banned years ago.

It must be a bug. If the account really was deleted, there wouldn't be a user profile, and the username would be black (or the color of regular text, regardless, it wouldn't be clickable).
