Maybe you question was not related to this forum.

In forums generally there is always a fight against Spammer, Troll, .... so it can be, if you post is not clear enough, you are removed.

AND you should post this in "Forum » Miscellaneous » Other" not in "Forum » Programming » General" because this is not a statement about programming.

Sorry about this.

I've been trying to find something in our logs (to start with, which moderator may have been involved).

But I can't currently find anything. The logs are not really verbose, but the last deleted post appears to be from August 2nd. (Though I may have missed something...)

If you could provide more info please (you can send by PM if you prefer):
- The username with which you posted yesterday (7 Aug 2019)
- Was that user registered yesterday, or longer ago?
- What about did you enquire?  (And you did ask in a new topic, or as follow up in an existing topic?)

Two accounts were registered from the same IP on the same day and reacted to each other with posts that didn't have much content. It looked like seeding accounts for spam.

That's an acceptable policy in my view. 
Most people that want to use threading should learn to patch their jeans first: use a needle.

Which one?

I hope you mean the policy of deleting such accounts.

But please clarify, from your post one could assume that you mean that the acceptable policy is creating two accounts and start talking with each other. ;)

We are working in the same company and he really had the same issue. We just tought if we are posting in the same thread we could get the answer quicker.
Can you please reactivate the other account please.  O:-) O:-) O:-) :-[

He can register again.

While I'm sorry I made a mistake, I still stand by the earlier assessment, it really looked somewhat odd.

Anyway, your colleague can just reregister, no blocks were added.

@Zoran
Actually, Marco did NOT make a mistake.
Although he apologized, I don't think that was warranted.

Yes, that's what I thought your opinion was, in the first place.
And I agree with you.
I wanted to draw your attention, as I noticed that what you said could be understood the opposite way.
