Can you delete my account please?
Delete my account
Accounts here cannot be deleted, but you can delete the blog yourself from the Dashboard Tools page.
So if someone hacks into my account, and starts using it to defame me or slander me, WP cannot delete an account?
So what if you delete your account name and I get the name and post all over the internet as you - remarks on lots of porn sites etc. - not releasing account names (deleting) is really for your protection - also have you not heard of using a real long long password?
Username accounts are not ever deleted but there are steps you can take that result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind.
http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/ please note the following:
1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile and remove all data except the account name and an email address. Create a throwaway email address and change the account email to that throwaway address. This only leaves the username behind.
2. To unsubscribe from email sent to you from WordPress.com, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from WordPress.com”:
3. To ensure the account is locked up tightly, visit this site, generate a password of 15-20 characters, and change the account password to it:
4. While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the "Edit My Profile" page here:
You can also hide your Gravatar profile from external access. Visit your profile page (click your name in the top navigation of the website), then click the "Hide My Profile" link in the bottom, right-hand corner.
