    Silly question- how do I delete this account?

    I was alerted that the ubuntu forums were hacked. Logging back on, it looks like I've created a new account! When what I wanted to do is delete my old account! I don't use ubuntu anymore and the hacking has woken me up to the fact I should get rid of old accounts I don't use anymore...

    First up - users cannot delete their own accounts. Second we don't delete accounts anyway but disable them so that they cannot be logged into, and also remove personal information from the profile.

    If you want your original account disabled, you will have to be able to prove you are the registrant. Quoting the email address registered to the account is enough, but I suggest if you remember that you pm it to me and I can then disable the account. After which I can disable this account.
