I understand that account deletions are not generally done, but could an exception be made? I likely would have never made an account or even had inclination to post if I had realized that both the account and the posts themselves could not be deleted at my discretion. I find this rather unsettling. Add to this that I feel very uncomfortable with my real name being associated with my profile. I no longer intend to post on here so if my account could be deleted I would deeply appreciate it.

God bless.

Our account non-deletion policy is part of the forum rules, to which you agreed on signup. If you intend to leave, you can simply add 'I no longer post on this forum' or something similar in your signature. We could change your username, if you are worried about identification, but that will only affect the dynamic link on your sidebar, not any of your posts that others have quoted.

Okay. I PM'd Fr. George a few days ago, asking to change my username but have not gotten a response. How can I have this done?

My fault, I forgot to mention that Fr. George could take a while to respond.  Hang in there.

Honestly, is there ANY way. Anything at all that I can do to have my account deleted? Could someone just ban me even? Do I have to just spam the forums with garbage for a week straight to get deleted because I will.

Matthew, shouldn't that be enough for you? I mean your posts are quite neutral so far. If you have posted things like personal confessions or some disturbing statements I could comprehend your concern better.

Banning won't delete your account. It will just lock you out of it and leave all the garbage in place for the world to see.

My guess is that will just call more attention to your name.  You have so few posts that I wouldn't worry about it. Before long they will settle to the bottom of forgotten posts along with everything else on the web.

Yes, Nathanael, that is fine with me if I could actually manage to get my username changed. Is Fr. George the only one who can do it?
