Default Account Deletion

Is there a possible way to delete a forum account? No offense! LOL I just made a forum account to get a question answered and found the answer before I could even ask here.

Why not stick around, ask more questions, and learn more things?

Also, there's no obligation to _use_ the account. It can sleep and wait if you may happen to
need it any time in the future.

I assume it is to protect against DB exposure (accidental/deliberate/hacking/etc.).

I think it is good practice to clean things up and delete unneeded information after its usefulness has ended.
