Deleting/Inactive Accounts

  1. Why won't WordPress delete accounts or if made inactive delete them after a period of time? I want to get rid of my stuff completely including login.
    Blog url:

  2. There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. Username accounts are not deleted at wordpress.com http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/ but 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”:
    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:
