Option to Delete Account Removed
« on: August 12, 2013, 12:34:23 PM »
As a long-overdue bit of housekeeping, the option to delete one's account has been disabled.

This is a change of little consequence from the members' point of view.  Deleting one's account does not delete one's posts anyway, or remove one's nickname from them.  It merely removes the account to which the nickname corresponds.  The absence of an account tying these posts together is a nuisance for maintenance and record-keeping.

If you wish to no longer have your account, contact me and I will reset your password to a random value.  The practical consequence of this will be much the same as if the account had been deleted.  Be advised that this decision is still permanent, and you will not have the option to change your mind later.

What do I do if I want someone else's account deleted?  ;D
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

Head or hands and feet?

Head and shoulders, knees and toes, knees and toes.

Can I bring a doctor's note stating that said poster/posters is certified clinically brain dead?
