comment Does “ink is expensive” apply in a user interface context?
I agree - I was just struggling for the right word. The principles are the same however - if it is not needed to convey information, it should not be there. And, of course, the paper also expresses information, by the lack of ink on it. So every pixel is precious.

comment What's the best way to handle deleted user accounts on a social app?
I would endorse the comments that you need to ensure that personal information is removed, whatever you do. Exactly what may depend on what they signed up to. But this could be done periodically on all marked users.

Definately mark as Deleted User - especially in a discussion forum, so that other know they will not get any more responses. And markign the user like this should be straightforward coding wise - no thread searching required.

comment Preventing impossible clicks
That is one of the occasions when it is OK. It is probably better to manage the links - remove the link while keeping the text - but it is acceptable because we partly expect this.

comment Common pattern for “multiple fields, at least one required”
This style would be my preferred approach. the asterix ( which is a known indicator ) then is seen to relate to the whole group. Grouping is often a good idea.

comment How important is feedback?
I think the point is that the user shouldn't have to wait more than a few hours. Feedback is not just about technical solutions, but about peoples involvement as well. It is always dangerous to assume that there is a technical solution.
