See comment 11 of this bug; paragraph 2 for a detailed explanation. With this
change previously locked accounts with abusive usernames and/or private data
can log in and start propagating again those insults, or even worse, private
info. That data is mostly covered by the oversight and privacy policies (thus
direct legal issues to the Foundation may pop-up).

Can this be reverted, please? - it's obvious that it causes more harm than
benefits. Thank you.
