How to resign from the Forum
« on: September 29, 2012, 09:56:22 AM »

Method #1: Cease reading and posting.  This is a very popular and effective method.  It does not require permission from anyone nor impose any work on others.

Method #2: Request account deactivation.  You will have to confirm deactivation using the e-mail account given in your registration.  The account will be set to "read-only" and a signature will be appended to all of your posts indicating that you have resigned.

The reason for not allowing users to deactivate their own accounts is that their posts then become zombies attributed to a non-existent guest account.  This leaves holes in the threads to which the user contributed.  Deactivated accounts will maintain the relationship between the user's name and the things that user wrote for the benefit of future readers.
