i'd like to delete my account on here. any way on how to or do I have to let an administrator know I want to. thanks

Max Rockatansky:
Yes, but it is a timed sequence that you have to punch in as code on the password screen.  Id tell you what the code is, but the timing very precise.  It might just be easier to log out and move on.

More serious answer: an account can be deleted, but it's irreversible, and it simply replaces all your posts with one equivalent to an unregistered user. It's easier just to scramble your password.

The best advice was this:

  "Perhaps you could change the password to something you could never remember, maybe by typing a bunch of gibberish characters"

And also, in the previous thread linked to in that one, Scott made sure to clarify the following:

  "Note that having your account deleted will not delete your posts, however. They will simply be displayed as posted by a guest user with the same name."
