    The only way to remove a user from the database is for the Administrator to do it manually.

    You can't. But no one is making you keep using it.

    all true... but since you just joined and have only this one post on the site, why are you wanting to bail out so quickly?

    At a guess, he's discovered the review requirements.

    But just walking away isn't sufficiently dramatic. One must make a huge noise about leaving.

    We don't allow account deletion. The main reason is that a forum is a social setting, and deleting an account would affect threads that other members might still post in, find resourceful, or any of several other reasons.

    We almost never send out mass emails to our users - maybe once or twice per year (if at all). If you still want to unsubscribe from these, however, you can do so in your user control panel.
