Note that I have removed almost 1000 unused accounts (most older than 1 year that either never logged in or have no posts).  Note also that I am aware that I did delete a couple of accounts in the process where the user had logged in more recently (but there were no posts).  Just create a new account if that impacted you specifically (since the username is removed and the email is removed, you can use the same parameters).
Thanks,
Dave

Dave,

Is there a way we can have an option to delete our accounts if we decide to leave permanently?

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

Nowhere, but I guess he´s the only one that can remove an account as mentioned in the first post by him. If you mail him from the email account with which you have registered, then I guess he could.

Uh....I could easily forge an email so that it says "sent from" your email address, even if it was sent from my account.  That's trivial in many email programs.

Well, then there´s also the possibility that Dave only deletes accounts where he got an email and the correct password to log into the Forum. This can only be known if the account of the user was somehow hacked.

Yep.  As long as either:

1) You have to demonstrate that you know the account's password, or...
2) Dave replies to the initial email with a request for a followup confirmation email,

then it's fine.  But if all it takes is a single email that appears to be from the appropriate email address, then that's way too easy a way to delete accounts.

He's had a no deleting policy in the past (other than for space now, I guess)... that's what got us into that whole TexasIndy situation.

Actually kljackson was a victim of an earlier purge of unused accounts.
