How can I delete my account? It seems this option is not in the profile page. Maybe some administrator could delete it? Just ban me that should work :) Thanks.

Sorry, but that option is excluded except for very good reasons.

Why would you do that, pOwer?
Cause and effect are distant in time and space in complex systems, while at the same time there’s a tendency to look for causes near the events sought to be explained. Time delays in feedback in systems result in the condition where the long-run response of a system to an action is often different from its short-run response. — Ronald J. Ziegler

Regardless of his motives I think he is right that one should be able to delete ones own account.

Still i'm also curious: why p0wer?

Deleting one's account makes life hell for other users, especially if the poster in question was prolific. It's much easier to search for past topics via the username account profile, so, without that, forum-searching becomes a real chore.

If you want pOwer, you can change all of the personal information associated with the account to nonsensical things that won't allow people to find or reach you, and just stop using it.
