To delete a user, you will want to open a terminal and login as root, then type
userdel USERNAME
Also, please, per the LQ Rules, try to refrain from using profanity on the forums and remain mature.

I think your wishes are about to come true (or at least they should).

If you don't want to remain a member of this forum, you have 2 choices:
the first is to carry on as you are doing - it won't take very long before you are a pariah and are banned. The downside is that if you want to reuse the boards, you will have to contact the admin and politely ask to be reinstated

The second choice is to just go away. Don't log on to LQ, don't read the boards, clear us from your cache and never ever speak of us again.

This thread. btw, is closed.
