    Accounts really aren't "delete" per se.

    They're either banned if the user has done something wrong, but no purging of accounts. You've never posted until this post, truth be told.

    I think his point was that you haven't posted anything, so why do you actually need it deleted? It's not like you posted something incriminating to yourself where a Google search of your name may potentially cause you to not get a job.

    Just... don't log in anymore. Problem solved.

    No. Don't work on getting banned... my hands are full in that area already.

    My point is that you had never posted until now. No need to post again, two posts is insignificant.

    Actually, getting banned simply means that you won't get your accounted deleted, nor will you have any access to it. So, getting banned doesn't fix anything....

    Ugh! What a newbie mistake. I would swear I was looking at thread from this week when I posted that response. I deserve to be banned for the atrocity....

    So the only way out is to get banned? Should I just post a tonne of antisemetic memes?

    Or revive old threads?

    Actually, as you just learned, getting banned doesn't get you out. It only locks your account.


    EDIT:
    More importantly, our (unwritten) procedures are pretty simple when it comes to removing accounts. We will actually remove an account, but only if it has no posts or has only created threads with no responses. Once the person has posted into an existing thread or gets a response to their own thread, then it starts impacting other people's thread and post counts, and thus we ask that people simply abandon the account (they can change the email address in the profile to make that disconnection).

    In short - had you not posted to this thread and simply had sent a request to an admin to remove your account, it likely would have happened.
