    Delete an account?!

    Um... you can't. It just sits there, doing nothing.

    As the others have said, you can't delete it.

    Just remove your email subscriptions in the user panel then click the X in the top right corner. That should remove all physical interaction between you and the forum.

    I agree with what you have said and it is interesting to note that there are forum members who have not fully read all the well-written explanatory sections in the link that you have shown.....even if the query in question is at the bottom section of these.

    What's so difficult about just not logging in and posting?

    It does sound like he wants all reference to any existance of his membership on this forum to be totally and utterly deleted.

    It's been discussed many times, you cannot delete your account i do believe, just remove all email subscriptions and you will not get any emails.

    I might sound harsh here but s/he shouldn't have posted anything in the first place then.

    A bit odd not being able to delete your account though. Why is this?

    Because if all your posts are removed then there will be massive gaps in topics which would then mean that those topics, and a lot of other replies, make no sense at all.

    This is the point that I made when I said that many forum members do not totally read all the carefully written forum provisos and rules. Had this person done this, he would have already read (and hopefully understood) all of these, before making any commitment which he would then knew to be irreversible.
