So my user doesn't exist according to http://news.ycombinator.com/user?id=alexcr

However, I also get That username is taken. Please choose another when I try to register the same username. Have I been banned? If so, would you like to start indicating that in the interface somewhere?

For example: "You cannot login because this account was banned" or "The user account you tried to lookup no longer exists because it was banned" ?

Account: alexcr
