Removal/Wipe of user account?

Posted 09 February 2020 - 04:50 PM

I know I asked this a few years ago, but the same issue has resurfaced. Please allow me to delete my account. I'll go into detail privately if needed, but I would sincerely appreciate this account being removed.

I am not sure what resurfaced, or find a prior request, but per the site rules we do not remove accounts or wipe posts as that tends to destroy the whole historical learning process.

I can't find a single reference to anything that you have posted. So I don't know what you are worried about being dug up on you.

Most of the time when this is asked, it is a student that doesn't want to be found out as cheating on course work. Even if that is the case, the only topic I see with a few different searches is you asking for your account to be removed.

Interesting that the "posts" count on the member panel here shows 16 posts, but when I look at the "Find posts" link for this user I see just this post here.

I suspect that the posts in question have been deleted by the user.

With the OP's account having been created back in 2012, I don't think the posts were deleted, I believe that they pre-date an old site migration. It is my understanding that these older posts are not searchable.

Doing a Google search for the OP's name, I also find nothing.

Ah, got it. Thanks for that!
That should also address the user's concerns...
