A user recently requested his account deleted. He may have been the topic starter. Unfortunately when an account goes away so do all of the threads they made

I think we also have an official topic now to discuss people who ask to be deleted. I know every time my post count goes down that somebody was deleted.

I have a question though: why do people delete their accounts? It's not like their real life counter-parts will ever find their NG account and read their embarrassing posts. I mean, it's better to have something and not need it, rather than delete an account you've had for years am I right?

Official? No. some statwhores complain in a circle jerk every time. It does help me meet my quota of +1 posting bans though because I know where to look ^_^

I really don't know. It seems like a recent phenomenon. Maybe kids learning how to internet the last 5 years are so used to being able to delete their accounts/posts/tweets by default they just assume that's how the internet is works? Back in the day, before facebook/twitter/etc you really only asked for your account to be deleted because you got a job as like a security contractor or something crazy or you felt so addicted that you had to cut the site completely out of your life and internet history....But now adays the users are asking for post wipes and account deletions but then sticking around anyway. Makes no sense to me. If you are going to take the nuclear option then you shouldn't be coming back after.

I first came here in 2008. That's probably not what you're talking about, but now that I think about it, it's about halfway through the point of the portal's history, so it probably does count now. I've been watching flash since 2004 though!

2004 was a great year for watching flash. Don't forget about the games as well.

Hey all.

I haven't looked at my previous posts in awhile ....but seeing as i haven't changed my belief stance. Probably a bigger fan of the FSM than ever ( red wine might have something to do with that)
My views on Gov & the now complete control by big business interests aka the Rich I mean absolutely unbelievable rich. Buying every politician & Party elite in sight ,Is more firmly in place than ever.
After all Who Fucking Cares what Party is in power or gets elected ...When you have been buying ALL OF THEM !!!!

So if i have come to the attention of the criminals in charge ...or at least the flunkies that work for them. Cancelling my Newgrounds account, ain't gonna fix that ~;p

So in the glaring light of That ....i am just doing my best to take care of myself & those i love.
Hope you are all doing ok as well.

See ya, going kayaking
