Unfortunately, in Australia they are required under law to delete, and I dont think they want me to go legal or to the ESafety comissioner. So this is my official notice to delete.

Actually:

Australian consumers don’t have a right to erasure of their data embedded in law.

Under the new esafety laws anything classed as forums or social media that operate in Australia, must have a delete option.

If there isnt they are subject to fines and possible blocking

I would love to see a source on this. Do you have anything to back this up?

Also Media Spy is hosted in Singapore so Australian law does not necessarily apply here.

I thought the hamsters that power this site are based in Sydney?

I had asked for this a number of years back. They ended up putting a “requested by user” block on my account. I am glad as I when I was ready to come back on my own terms, I have been welcomed back. I get it…sometimes we want to leave everything behind though. Would this be a compromise that would work for you?

Maybe if you really need…the mods can remove your personal info from your profile and change the username prior to doing this so it doesn’t identify you easily? (Assuming that can be done)

Does deleting an account remove all the posts? Would be a shame to lose them.

I’ve seen it be done on this site before, so yes, it seems to be an option.
