Strange @duolingo.com email accounts

Does anyone else get requests from a bunch of random letters and numbers followed by @duolingo.com in Duolingo schools accounts? Is this some kind of spam?

You might submit an abuse report via
https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/205101500-How-do-I-report-abuse-


Edit:
They could be accounts from students who deactivated their accounts via
https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204567904-How-can-I-deactivate-my-Duolingo-account-

In that case the usernames will look like the username in this discussion

Note: FYI, the accounts starting with "tu.8z" are trial account (temporary accounts that are given to anyone who tries Duo without creating an account), not deactivated accounts.
