#4631 new defect

When profiles are deleted/removed, they should 301, not 302

Description (last modified by jonoaldersonwp)

It appears that the current process of deleting (presumably spammy) profiles, such as https://profiles.wordpress.org/pornstarshop/ results in a 302 redirect to https://wordpress.org. This should be altered to use a 301 redirect for both future and existing redirects.

User profiles are not deleted or removed. The example you give doesn't exist and never has, as far as I can tell.

A recent blocked account would be https://profiles.wordpress.org/admindevelopers/ for example. As you can see, no redirect or other indications that it is blocked.

Ah, looks like this happens on any invalid request. E.g.,
https://profiles.wordpress.org/asdasdasdasdasdasddfghgreaergsgreagraregre.

Could we make these serve a clean 404 page, with a 404 HTTP status, and no redirect(s) please?
