How do I delete my account?

To delete your account, please email with the email address you used when you registered.  We will then delete your account ASAP and confirm that via email back to you.

We don't currently support self-service deletion because member accounts usually get linked to each other (by following or giving helpful votes, for example).  The technology to reliably un-wind these connections in a self-serve way is complex, and we don't want to risk a database corruption.  That's why we handle deletions manually.

We hope to have self-service deletion in the future, since if you don't want to be a member of the community, we want to make it easy for you to leave.

All that said, we hope you'll stay and contribute to our community!  :)
