    Click on your avatar, chose the "Edit Profile and settings" tab, and see "Delete profile near the bottom of the menu on the left. GDPR FTW. – xenoid Oct 10 at 11:52
  • If something upset you, you can ask about it here on meta... Stack Exchange sites take some getting used to, but we try to make them useful and fun... – Zanna Oct 10 at 19:48
  • @Zanna from the original revision of this question, OP doesn't like the "overly-moderated community", possibly due to this comment – Andrew T. Oct 11 at 3:52

  • That is right Andrew T. Whats the use of all this Voting system stuff, if there is still the need to install overly ego bloated and underly paid (or better non paid thus unprofessional) moderators? This was meant to be a direct democratic system. Now its still the moderators who decide what is right and wrong. Direct democracy down the drain... – user878031 Oct 11 at 9:18
  • After being a member for about 24h in this community, I have already a moderator breathing down my neck. Because I decided to contribute and not just some blah but a real solution. Not in this shack. Not my idea of fun. Even less my idea of 'open' and 'free'. Why would I like to be part of this? – user878031 Oct 11 at 9:37

    Moderators have been here for a long time and have the responsibility of making sure that questions and answers are easy to find. If we have too many small variations of the same question, it's harder to find the right answer. If people put the same answer everywhere then they miss the nuances of the question. This isn't overly-moderated. This is the responsibility of helping people find things more quickly. We all get it wrong from time to time, but it's important to learn why they're doing it than presume that they're doing it due to ego. – tudor Oct 12 at 4:27
  • The Internet was definitely a better place before the invention of the censor aka the forum moderator, for whom the satisfaction of his base pleasures are payment enough...ugh. However, I know that a great amount of people in this world cannot and do not want to live without censors. Sadly not only those censors in their heads, they need them in the internet as well. Thank you, squares of this world, I pity the smallness of your minds... :) – user878031 2 days ago

Yes, click on "users" on the left side of the screen then click on "Edit Profiles & settings". Partway down the page, you should see "Delete Profile".
