Hi,

I'm looking to delete this account if possible and, ideally, wipe any data associated with it. Given the time between my last post and now totals almost 40% of my lifetime, I think it's a fairly reasonable request. :wink: As my old posts on here still show up with a quick Google of my username, I'd much rather it wasn't just a simple ban.

Cheers!

I'm not a moderator, but it is generally a bad idea to delete all of a user's post. That usually renders whole threads non-sensical as other users suddenly appear to have talked to themselves, or making up quotes out of thin air.

I understand the sentiment -- "I was so young and inexperienced back then" -- but that's the internet for you. Take care what you write, it can be tracked back to you decades later. 8)

I think it's already too late, unless the website makes a private backup of every post made.

He has overwritten all of his messages and post titles with <deleted>

That just shows he still hasn't really grown up, doesn't it? :roll:

At this point, I'd refuse to delete his account on purpose. Let the shame persist. :twisted:
