Your Ubuntu account on your PC?

Or your Ubuntu account for these forums?

To remove an account under Ubuntu, go to System > Administration > Users and Groups. Select the account you want remove, and click "Delete".

I don't think you can delete the forums account.

Just set your password to something super hard (i.e. 24 characters/numbers) and then don't log back in :)

Joeb454 is correct: Forum accounts cannot be deleted. This is explained in the FAQ.

As said earlier, your account cannot be deleted. All personal informations (email etc.) can however be deleted and the password changed to something unguessable by an admin. Please answer here if you wish to have it done, thanks.
