How exactly do I delete my account?

I made the mistake of questioning Dear Leader Sherrod Brown for co-sponsoring PIPA in a thread, and my post was hidden on the grounds that I'm a "right-wing troll" because I refuse to give fellatio to Dear Hollywood.

I'm wondering how exactly I delete my account. I've searched the tabs at the top of the screen and can't find anything.

5. If agreeing with someone or giving support to a cause is the same as "giving fellatio",

then, yeah, you're probably at the wrong site.

16. Yes, but by requesting

 

to be removed, it shows the administrative powers that be that there
are people leaving and why.

10. Assuming this is a honest question,

change your email to me@me.com and your password to something random like j8s7e%7eiue6^ and then log out.

You will then be locked from participating.

Be well,

12. Every aspect of the OP would be better suited as a Meta post.

I'm not sure why people ask this question.

Do they feel they don't have sufficient self-control to just log out and not log back in?

Or the courage to delete the bookmark from their browser?

I have have trouble believing these posts.

13. I too would like to cancel/close my account.

I've received 'warnings' about my comments that I feel may have been judged a little TOO sensitively. It seems that I've offended the 'Jury' and have been banned from commenting for periods of time. If people can't take a joke then why bother commenting. I've seen much worse things said than my posts and yet I see no punishment of the offender. I'm not thin-skinned, in fact, I think it's the opposite. I'd just rather not be a part of a 'community' that lacks a sense of humor or the ability to understand a humorous post.

I find the site a good place to see and read articles that I don't find elsewhere. I also liked to comment on things that I thought added humor to otherwise contentious posts. However, I guess my comments weren't in line with the EUA. Regardless, I'll be taking Ruby's advice and 'close' my account. I'll still be viewing, I just won't participate anymore.

15. I agree

 

I'd just love to know exactly WHO on that jury decided to hide my benign post when
there are such vulgar and obnoxious posts that remain AGAINST ME in the same
thread.

20. You are not allowed to leave

Once you enter the steel cage, there is no exit. Welcome, you will falter, but by faltering you will learn. By learning, you will grow. By growing, you will have pain. By having pain, you will toughen. By toughening, you will become strong. By being strong, you will be challenged. By being challenged, you will defend. By defending, you will see. By seeing, you will see there is no way out.

21. Just get used to the silliness.

You'll good people with whom to discuss issues and help each other learn. There are sub-communities that are destructive, but, like anywhere, you have to learn to let it go, or respond differently.
