Account deletion

Asked on September 13, 2014
Created November 19, 2012 at 5:33 PM

I'm sorry, I attempted to look thru the FAQ, and setting. I don't really want to be involved with this site. I'd like to delete my account but don't see a way to do it. Could someone post a link?

VB, somebody did that recently, and did it rather obnoxiously. We rollbacked nearly all of them.

Yeah, a shame. You brought something to the 'community' here.

To delete your account, just email admin (Patrik) or one of the mods and request that your account be deleted.

Satchmo, what do you mean your email comes up under a search? like if you google your email, your Paleohacks stuff turns up?

They don't let you delete your own questions if there are too many answers/upvotes...

I didn't know you got banned! Lame-o! :( Too bad I missed the 2 days of porn, though. How did that happen?!

@Alligator - Yes, these are personal. Paleo is getting pretty dark from where I sit. Fake bomb threats to attack someone whose view on carbs/cold exposure you don't like? Really? The Paleo Drama site where a moderator takes statements she disagrees with and rips the person apart just for fun? All of those are very personal, these are real people. I did everything I could, went all over this site. They don't tell you how to delete your account. This is registered to my e-mail, comes up under a serach for my e-mail and I am just kind of fed up.

Posting a question about deleting your account is a lot more dramatic than just not using paleohacks anymore.

@ Satchmo- none of those things are personal attacks, so don't take them personally. To me it seems like you're also being dramatic. Jihad? Really? Strong opinions are bound to attract some strong opposition.

I think you are the one being dramatic about things. None of those are perosnal attacks against you, so don't take them personally. There are bound to be some strong opposing opinions where ever strong opinions exist.

Mostly just delete my stuff, left the best ones. It didn't help that Harry had gone thru and commented on or -1'd almost everything I had written. I also just find myself getting tired of "Jimmy Moore Sucks" and "Jack Kruse is evil" now "Richard Nikolay is blah blah" and what's the next Jihad? Who is next? Robb Wolf? Mark Sisson? Or is it meat? Or maybe tubers will become "bad" (again). The whole thing seems so dramatic...

It's like the Hotel California: "...you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave..."

I looked through the FAQs, it seems pretty straight forward:

  1. Self-Promote
  2. Go wild with ad hominem comments
  3. Be overly dramatic and hysterical

Just kidding, of course.

Would you care to discuss why you are leaving. I realize something happened, On your old username you were pretty active, then disappeared, then reappeared with a bunch of your "rep" points gone. What happened?

I'm not sure, but this may be relevant. Then again, maybe that code has been disabled here or only part of a newer version of the software:

I think each person should be able to delete his/her account. What you can do is

  1. Delete all your questions or edit them in a way so nobody can see what your wrote.

  2. Delete all your answers

  3. No longer log in. No longer come back to this site.

It is totally up to you. You have the right to do what seems best for you.

Hope everything works out and you continue eating healthy. Don't take people's comments to heart. People are people. They might be sick, moody, hormonal, etc. Some people are just bullies. The best way is to avoid/ignore them. Just like in real life. Good luck.
