6. That doesn't remove the account.

 

You shouldn't leave unused accounts active. It is a security risk. I don't know how many times I've had my email and account info seized by some hack of a website or another. If you aren't using a service any more, delete the account.

https://haveibeenpwned.com/

You can enter your email address here to see if your information has been stolen. If you are telling people to "just stop showing up" I suggest you check your email address IMMEDIATELY. That is dangerous.

Orphaned accounts leave behind personal and identifying information that can be aggregated into larger repositories after they are hacked. Ever use the same security question on two sites? The same password? How about a credit card, etc.? Best to check, change your passwords, and have random / fake security questions.

25. Manufacture Any Difficulty You Like, Sir

Spin it out as long as you can, but remember object permanence --- you will continue to exist even when no one is paying the least attention to you.

3. 1. Change your password to a series of characters you'll never remember and don't write down

2. Log off.

3. Mission accomplished.

19. Look at the replies...

 

I had to go to Bing and craft a search to find it. When I came here and asked a SIMPLE question, I just got mocked.

Anyone of the could simply have said what you said.

Instead it was just snark. Nobody has been like that in the other forums on here. What am I missing?

33. It's just that there have been some historic flameouts that ended this way. But as others have

Said, go to ask the admins.

You can also go to Ďmy postsí and delete your individual posts, tedious but doable.

Then change your password to wheklrhjaiwpuq[goivwj[03qop inrp39rob i 2ugjrnvior2g3jrkwm Or other random keystrokes you will never remember and hit enter.

Or you could just forget about DU.

Best luck, cheers

Walking into an in-group joke unaware. Poor thing.

17. On the left side, under main, you will see "ask admin". Go there.

One does wonder at your written feeling of desperation. You have been here a month, mostly in one of the most fun groups, and, instead of just not coming back in, you want to make it official. Sounds a bit extreme, but, your choice.

Lots of deleted posts but no instructions.

28. there are valid reasons to delete account.

The one I can think of is employment. A job application for a conservative employer - like the FBI - in this era could lose you the job if discovered. Not sure if deleting account would delete all reference though

30. Be an a-hole in a post and the admins will do it for you.

Or you could message the admins and ask them to remove your account.

I have seen it happen a few times. I just never know if they meant to do it or not.
