    Just stop posting. As I understand things, they simply won't delete accounts upon request, unusual circumstances possible excepted.

    We can ban you but we can't delete the account.

    Accounts can be deleted but it requires admin rights with the proper privileges. I dunno the structure here but it's possible Greg is the only one with such an ability.

    They can be deleted but it has never been our policy to do so.

    You're stuck with us forever! Muwhahahahaha!

    Yes, I think Greg and Chroot are the only ones who can really delete an account, but there's not much reason to do so. We don't want someone's posts to disappear. If you don't post for a long time, your account becomes inactive automatically. I'm not really sure what exactly that does to your account, though. I guess that if you're leaving and not planning on coming back (how could you even consider it!...oh, wait, I considered it, and see how far it got me?), just go into your profile page and turn off all the places where you could get notifications or emails so you don't get bugged with things like messages that your PM inbox is full.
