Easiest for you is to PM Ben@KVR.
Not sure how much work it is for him, but it's been done before.

might not go - trying restricting myself to only forums for companies whose products I own. I'm actually in a whole de-netting myself, even de-computering myself :)

The best you could get is a deletion of your user name anyway. So, you'd end up as ObsAcc97, with all of your posts remaining on the site/forum. Further, it's hardly your data, as you chose to have a account, and post on the internet, which is a public place. The things which are your data remain invisible to other users anyway, like, your email adress or password. But, even then, you chose to register on this site with your data, like your email adress, or personal information, which you chose to share, either with the site owners, the account system, or even other users here, so, again, you chose to share your data with others.

Anyway, glad you decide to stay. :) Even if you decide to go, i think it's a good idea to leave your account as it is. When you decided to post helpful stuff, it's surely appreciated by other users here.

yeah, not only have i appreciated the music you posted 8)
but you inspired me to look at tai chi as an option for pain relief :tu:
not that im as committed as i should be :oops:
but i do find some of the upper body stuff, helps stretch out some of the shoulder aches.

so if you do leave, i hope you at least know you've helped someone as far away as can be :D

thanks everyone for those kind words - I'm not pissed off at KVR (I use the foe function a lot), more as I said earlier I have been trying to de-net myself to a fair degree. Seems to be working, I bought some software called FocusMe and it is pretty good at limiting using the computer and / the net. So with a bit of luck I can have my cake and eat it too :)

(although I pretty much have disappeared off facebook and would if not for a few companies that only use facebook for support)
