Oh, yes, certainly.  Actually, players will tend to disappear for many
reasons, including banning, loss of interest in the game, and even player
death.  When I vanished from AmberMUSH, I didn't leave any instructions or
explanations regarding my primary character, and the folks in the game did
a fine job of building an assassination plot to explain her disappearance.
I joked with someone once that wow, she must *really* be dead.  If she'd
faked her death, she would have certainly framed someone she didn't like
for it, in the process. :)
