Does WordPress have a moral obligation to allow people to delete their WordPress Accounts, especially after Admin changes the system they originally signed up with? How long should "I agree" apply, when the system can change in the future? Doesn't it seem immoral to hold people to an indefinite agreement?
Before anyone comments that I CHOSE to sign up in the first place, that assumes full disclosure of facts that didn't come to light until after my account was generated. When I signed up I didn't know my account couldn't be deleted, and neither did I know that years later WordPress would change it's system so I had no choice to comment as anyone but a WordPress account holder, on a WordPress blog.
At the time I clicked, "I agree" none of the things I wanted to now delete my blog for, had any bearing on my decision. So does WordPress have a moral obligation to allow people the right to delete there accounts, if WP decides to change the system on them? Instead of repeating the same mantra, "we honestly don't mind if you leave", how about stopping to ask why so many people have to ask if THEY CAN?
The current policy of WordPress is to deny account holders the right to delete their accounts. WordPress can change that policy at any time. They may not have to legally do it, but does that mean they avoid the moral question, of providing that service as a means of "respect" for their account holders? Yes, respect. Because anything less just looks bad for WordPress.
Unhappy account holders, continually mocked with witticism about leaving - WordPress looks like an emotionally undeveloped juvenile, by not being able to recognise the right of account holders to change their minds. The moral question still stands, because most people who write blogs do so for personal reasons, not business ones. If the system can change for "amendments" later on, why can't it change for "deleting accounts"?
