It was tongue in cheek.

I, sir, take exception to you taking exception to my post. Now, how does one close an account?

Er, I can't but JK might be keen to test his latest Device? That said, seeing as how you won't be needing that dog anymore, I'll have it.

Given JK's new power, & the assumption that there will now be a raft of folk queuing up to be deleted, why not put a "self destruct" button on the profile page? That way , people will be able to quietly self-immoliate without any histrionics or final "point to prove" statements. They'll be able to shuffle off the Ribnet coil at their leisure, a sort of Ribnet Dignitas👍

Renaming deleted accounts to maintain anonymity isn't realy a bad idea to keep the post continuity it could be a serial no eg "account no12345 no longer a registered user"

Beamishken, the downside to that is that its not always obvious who replies like this are to. If someone has a genuine reason to change username then the techies in the US have ability to do this.

You certainly can't - anyone that really wants to disappear probably doesn't want to know about https://web.archive.org/
