Delete account and all personal details

  1. Please delete my account and all personal details held by WordPress. I am uncomfortable about having personal details held by parties I no longer have use for.

    The blog I need help with is asubtledance.wordpress.com.

  2. You are at liberty to remove any and all of the personal information you voluntarily entered at any time, including all that was required to create the account ie. an email address, which you can replace.

    Although username accounts are not deleted, so you cannot be impersonated and have your reputation affected by anyone registering the same username in the future, there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind. http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    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”:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/following/subsettings/

    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:

  3. Just delete my account without further delay. I have right to request this action and WP has an obligation to agree.

  4. That's not going to happen. Proceed as I posted above please.
