    I can disable it, but it will not be deleted. I can take out all your profile information or you can should you not wanting people to be able to see that. You can also, just log out and not come back.

    Yes please disable and remove profile information, can you please modify my screen name/user name so that it is non-identifiable.

    Why can't accounts be deleted? It's not parliament or the federal court, were all goings on need to be recorded.

    Surely it isn't that difficult.

    It could be that deleting the account also deletes the posts the account holder has made and threads he had started. Even a ban doesn't delete the account, would be easier just logging off and riding off into the sunset.

    I would also think the accounts would have some sorts of primary keys in the database that certain processes hinge off
    delete those primary keys and you'd have query errors that would kill the website

    This is true, however I am trying to tidy up by online identity for a number of reasons.

    I have seen on other forums that they migrate the posts to a generic, 'no longer a registered user' account so they don't have to delete posts. I would also say that I have made no meaningful posts on the forum and deleting my posts would be inconsequential.

    They delete spam bot accounts don't they?

    Can't this just be the same?

    Thats very true. Is it so that the forum appears to have more members than it actually does for advertising sales?
