Comment (by Clorith):

 I'm wondering if it would not make more sense to redirect the user to
 their own profile page if they just do `/support/users/`?

 I also believe it's the core redirect guess function doing this though, it
 might even make sense to disable the redirect guesser for the forums,
 given that topics that are removed are usually removed for a reason and
 having them reliably return a 404 instead of a different topic would be a
 better experience I think.
