    Sorry, to see you leave. You can't remove your account. We normally don't eliminate accounts because it would damage the readability of existing threads, and there is no need to do so. You can simply stop posting. Moreover, I gives you a chance to come back if you want to.

    Are you kidding me????? this must be a freaking joke! What kind of half-assed website do you run?

    ORDER! The answer to your deletion statement is clearly stated in the terms and rules

    hahaha right! If there is something missing in this forum is order!

    And since we are at it. There are no terms and rules. There is barely a section called "Physics Forums Global Guidelines" (Reference https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/physics-forums-global-guidelines.414380/) and even those seemed written by a kid. They are hardly enforceable!

    You need to provide users an option to delete their account!!! Don't be surprised if you get a lawsuit in the mail...

    We provide an option to delete all personal data, including changing the username. That does not include deleting the whole account.
    There is nothing to enforce. You ask the forum owner (@Greg Bernhardt) for a service. He can say yes, or he can say no.


    What is the purpose of all that? No one would ever have cared about your account if you wouldn't have made such a stir here. Now your account gets much more attention.

    Out of morbid interest, what is it you want to achieve that you're willing to spend money on a lawsuit? To stop yourself from logging in? To delete one "hi" post and one thread about a rotating rod and this thread?

    @physics_rino I would be glad to put in my 2 cents in any "lawsuit". If you would remain on the website, I think you might find it to give you considerable healthy interaction and discussion. The people who run this website deserve far better than that kind of input.

    Yeah, and he got very good help in the Homework thread. I wonder if he found out he wasn't supposed to get Internet help on it, and wants the account deleted hoping that the post will go away...

    You seem to miss the point. But let me explain it to you in a more clear manner. I do not care about attention. Those are your words. It is unheard of that any respectable forum does not allow the option to delete any account. It seems that physicsforum and its moderators are just trying to inflate their user numbers....that's quite deceiving!!!!

    I want the freedom to delete my account. How much I have done with it or not it's my and only my business. How many years do I need to invest in an account in order to be able to voice an opinion here? Please tell me

    They are getting the same input as the output they are providing with their "guidelines". I'll repeat what I said before "It is unheard of that any respectable forum does not allow the option to delete any account. It seems that physicsforum and its moderators are just trying to inflate their user numbers....that's quite deceiving!!!!"


    Just take a minute and think about it

    The thought did occur to me. But if he thinks a court case will be resolved before the problem sheet deadline, he's got another think coming.

    In that case, this thread is done. I'll go ahead and ban you, that should help you resist the urge to come back and post. Have a nice day.
