Availability of certain deleted/purged accounts

Availability of certain deleted/purged accounts

Short, concise description of the idea
If a deleted/purged account has no posts or comments listed to it's name, shouldn't it be made available freely without charge since there are no real problems with cross-commenting?

Full description of the idea
If a deleted and purged account has no posts or comments, say if someone created it but then thought of a better name and just straight away deleted it again without actually doing anything with it, why should that name not just be cycled back into general use?

An ordered list of benefits
  • More names for people to choose from.
    Easier than having to pay for something that someone probably never used anyway.
    No cost involved.
    No changes required by livejournal staff.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None that I can think of.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • Simply check a deleted account for the number of posts against it's name and if there are none, simply put it back into the list of freely available usernames.
