I was in a conversation with a user who's account has since been 
deleted. Unsure if it was by admin or self removed.

https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/user_7411226 (When he was editing his 
username was 'Stonemill2')

As you can see his previous chainsets are now unviewable. When they 
were, I noticed a few dubious edits that I was planning to double check 
in case they required reverting/amending. Is there a way to see them?

As it stands it means those intent on vandalism could create an account, 
deliberately add erroneous data, then delete leaving no traceable record 
of their edits.

Is this related to GDPR?
