How can I delete my account on here?

I've looked in the obvious places and cannot find how to delete my account.

Can someone please point me to how to delete my account on this forum? I don't use ArchLinux or its derivatives anymore and for security purposes I don't want to leave a dead account with password floating around.

Thanks,

No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Your password is not floating around anywhere.  Plain text passwords should never be stored.  The only time your plain text password is actually "floating around" is while it is in transit each time you log in - like you did to make this post - and it might be susceptible to a MITM.  Though even this is near impossible with https.

The only remotely private data stored for a forum account is your email address.

You could always just change your password to some random string and effectively "forget it".

The OP has left the building. Closing.


How to post. A sincere effort to use modest and proper language and grammar is a sign of respect toward the community.
