Deleting Account - No longer interesting in site

I've seen another thread where some GP Community member was able to 'disable' an Account. But this site really needs a way for Users, who sell their MB or otherwise are no longer interested in benzworld, to simply delete their account. I sold my MP 8 years ago and still will get emails from this site from time-to-time (admin related, like the latest one where passwords were reset).

I simply want to delete my account. How can I get this done? I'm sure BenzWorld would love to get rid of inactive Users as well.

Thank you

We do not delete accounts especially from members with a reasonably high post count.
This tends to disrupt topics that they have posted into.

In this particular case the member only has to choose not to accept email from BenzWorld. Nearly all sites offer this option.

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.

Could you permanently "ban" the user at his request? On the other site I frequent (and moderated) banning the user took them off the email distribution list but would not delete their posts. Simply shows them as "banned."

Yes, I've taken this option in some circumstances using the ban title then applying a custom CT to soften the BAN title.

It just depends on relevant circumstances.
