Hello everyone!

I'm doing a research test for a hacking course where I'm trying to remove as much of myself from the internet.

Is there anyway I can get my account deleted please? The more I'm able to get cleared the more points I get for the exercise.

I can delete your account, but your posts will remain.

EDIT: I figured I could elaborate a bit. Posts CAN be deleted with the account, however this is a community-based support system open to anyone the information you have contributed may help someone else. Since there doesn't seem to be any sensitive information in your posts (names, locations, phone numbers, credit card info, pet names, flight data, etc.) I don't feel there is a need to delete them. Call me a BOFH if you like, but this is how the Internet works. Also, being a site that is open to anyone, this site has been indexed by multiple crawlers and web archivers that will retain your public info anyway!
