We optimized the way we create accounts on various sites. We optimized how to recover lost passwords or set preferences. Bt why can’t we do the same to remove an account?
Most people already have this: too many accounts on sites / web applications that they no longer use, like or are even annoyed. But you can’t delete your account. No, you’re there forever. What about if you change your ideology and don’t want to be seen as a member of a particular site? In many cases you can’t have that. And it’s sad.
I’m not one for erasing or changing history, the communist era did too much of that, but I want to have a choice of whether I want to be a member of some site or not. Keep the fact that I joined your site in your archive, but let me erase myself.
