    Have the forum's policies about deleting accounts changed?

    Hey there. About 6.5 years ago, I used to be an active poster on this forum. A lot of the views I expressed on here no longer reflect what I believe; I was in a much different place in life when I started this account than where I am now. It would give me some peace of mind if my account were deleted, mostly for professional reasons.

    I recognize this place has a policy of not deleting accounts because, otherwise, users may create "sock puppet" aliases. Let me assure you, I have zero intention of ever making another account on this site. Excluding this post, I haven't been on here for the better part of a decade, and my "forum-posting days" are over in general. I'm just a normal person concerned about their privacy and trying to minimize their online footprint.

    Please consider making an exception to your policy and deleting my account. I really don't want to go through my 1000+ posts and delete specific ones.

    Well, jeez.....after stumbling over your current post, I read some of your previous posts and they seem pretty mild imho.
    Why do you think your anonymous posts will affect your professional life?
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    You running for president or something? Up until this post, I doubt I would have searched through 1,000-plus 6.5 year old posts, wondering which ones you might want to delete, but now you've piqued my curiosity. Hopefully while you were gone the great Yoda set you straight on the path to becoming a conservative Jedi Master.

    We don't delete accounts, sorry.
