It would be nice to be able to distinguish users/accounts that are known for sure to be no longer active.

e.g. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/John%20Bohrer was permanently banned
a while ago, but the account and profile remain unchanged.

Heh heh. I suggested something very similar just yesterday (with poll!).

Regarding deceased users, some do have a date badge, for example:

Kevin Pimentel
United States
Los Angeles
California

Clicking the badge will take you to the memorial page.

Some people may be banned from POSTING but they still visit the site and read.

Out of curiosity how would someone get into your account and update the GeekBadge to say you're deceased unless they've got your password?

I don't think it's a geekbadge, but an extra badge (like the game designer badge) that only admins can add.

I assume that it was set up with help from an admin, of course.

(Unless of course some friend did have the password!)
