    To me it seems only fair to delete a users account if they so wish.

    What about the database backups containing the user record sometimes going back decades? Should that be deleted also? What about user posts stored by sites like archive.org?

    Frankly deleting user accounts is an illusion of privacy at best, just stop using the site instead.

    This site is run as poorly as the food quality at a run down Chinese buffet. You have absolutely "wonderful" staff, aside from the legitimately helpful Borman @ASSEMbler

    Let people have free rights to close/delete accounts.

    Don't you think it's time to dump a lot of this staff though?

    I can't think of a single forum I'm on where an admin has deleted an entire user account/posts.

    Please remove tinfoil hat.

    I've seen many, even ran one or two.

    It's a very simple and understandable request.

    Im all for people wanting to close their accounts, but I still disagree with deleting posts (as that leads to the loss of information, the same thing we all were worrying about when this site went down). It also inevitably leads to that same member coming back, be it in the following months, or years later.

    It would be fair enough to have the information pass to a guest account.

    The subject of this topic has been discussed and run it's course. If you have further issues go to the unmoderated thread or make a new post.
