How can I delete my account?

Not planning any emo "goodbye cruel world" posts, I'm just very, very done with this site. I'm thinking there must be some way to delete an account short of getting the admins to ban me.

Thanks.

1. No there is no way to delete your account.

2. There isn't.

If you want to leave without a GBCW post then just do it. Good luck with whatever comes next for you.

3. Even getting banned doesn't delete an account. It just locks it up. nt

12. Isn't that kind of weird?

 

Still lets the site claim that person for advertising purposes but it's just a fake account at that point. Weird. Not my place; not my rules.

13. No, IME it's not weird at all. It's also not really a "fake account"...

It's simply an inactive one. If the member has never posted anything I could see deleting it perhaps, otherwise deleting the member and possibly their posts could mess with the flow of other member's posts.

15. Ah, if I had a dime for every bridge I've burned I'd be rich...

But I confess to all the words I've ever spoken, and all I've written.

No take-backs, not here, not on the internet, not in the Real World.[sup]TM[/sup]

Teenagers slam doors.

So, what's got you upset about this place?

If you don't want to answer, walk away....

16. Basically just sick to death of the Hillary vs. Bernie bullshit

 

Hopefully neither Hillary nor Bernie will ever run for President again, although I like both of them. And yet here we are, fighting the primary over, and over, and over...

17. I've now got those sorts of posts on my internal "ignore" lists.

I got a post hidden when I last adventured in one of those threads.

I've always been in the Hillary Clinton camp, if that matters.

20. Jesus christ, that is unsafe!

 

Seriously, everyone who is OK with this, go here and look at how many sites have LOST their data to hackers. Search for your email address.

https://haveibeenpwned.com/

I know you guys may think you are safe if the site hasn't been hacked, but honestly it is just a matter of time. Build in a way to do this pronto.

It's like walking around with no mask on. It might not hurt you, but you increase the risk to anyone not using the site anymore.
