I guess i'll just open a new account and leave the old one unused. It's just that i have too many user names to remember from various boards and i'm trying to have as few as possible. Thanks.
No account that has real posts is deleted - spammers and spambots and people who have never made a post, yes. Otherwise your account will have to stay live or else it creates orphan posts.
If you no longer wish to be a member here, go to your profile options and set all options not to notify you - that means that community bulletin as well as responses to posts. Once you have done that, change your password to be something very long and very unmemorable. And then log off LQ. In the absence of deletion, that is the best way to exit.
Out of interest, why do you no longer wish to be a member?
Thank you for being such a bunch of boneheaded designers!
I managed to make a typo when i picked my username, and now you are telling me that i have to go through hoops with emailing the ops get get it changed?
That is *hands down* the most stupid idea i have ever seen!
HINT: tie messages/posts to the user *ID* and not the user *name*, that way everyone can call themselves anything they bloody like, and change their login name as they see fit!

In the time it took you to post this, you could quite easily have emailed me (which really isn't that big of a hoop IMHO). Additionally, I don't know why you've inferring DB schema based on this policy decision - posts are tied to userid's.
