A question for the devs.
I've been experimenting with the WordPress plugins for hooking my site up into the fediverse. So far so good, but as a result my "node" now has a number of accounts which no long point to anything else than a 404 page.

Hoping that the network would be smart enough to drop servers which would have a 404 after enough time. But, half a year laters the node and accounts are still there.



And why don't nodes disappear from the network after some time? When a node would come up again it would add itself as if it was the first time. And toots and or profiles which only give a 404 are of no use to anyone..

#3/2 ps.
Search for and you find at least 4, no longer working users on that node.
