I see we can't close / delete our account. And I read a string about why that is and why would we want to?
Well it's simple. Since I've been hacked by someone with way more sophositication than this board provides. The potential exists for someone to log onto my old account, and please don't tell me about passwords, since it would seem that the hack occurs down the line, so anything I enter is likely to be captured. Run on sentence I know, but "someone" could access my accoun and post anything illegal and leave me with a world of problems.
Perhaps things have changed, but I do not see the option anywhere to close the account. Plus another horrible security practice is that most sites don't even delete the account. They just de-activate it, meaning anyone with the proper info can reactivate it without your knowledge and do the aforementioned.
Liste, there are few of us under such conditions. But the very dark side of hacking exists, and it would be nice if the obvious security holes could be plugged by people who should know better.
You can keep my info, just don't allow anyone, including me, access to it ever again. Security problem solved unless someone hack's your servers, and now that's not likely is it???
