1. It would be a huge effort on your part to delete your entire account.

But you can walk away. Just log out, change your password to something indecipherable that you could not possibly remember...and

then you're gone.

Might I suggest that you take a breather? Many have done that and then returned, refreshed and ready to talk again.

Primary season is always brutal.

Do what is best for you.

2. I know you are going to think this is crazy, but


The only surefire way to have every trace of you deleted is to be deemed a troll and get zapped. That way, all of your posts are auto-removed, and donít show that you deleted them.

So, make it good.

6. Only newbie trolls that get zapped have their posts auto-removed.

3. Accounts are never deleted. Delete what you want and walk away.

Take care.

5. I don't think the admins delete accounts, but you can just ignore it and walk away. ... or you

might want to keep it for just in case you want it again.

7. chill for 6 months, delete tempting bookmarks back to DU...

DU has kicked my ass from time to time, starting way back in 2001 (yeah, my profile says 2008, but me alter-ego was here 7 yrs before that). The best strategy is to walk away for a spell, and then come back with gangbusters blazing!

Okay, even I have to question "gangbusters blazing"?

I just made it up. Sound pretty badass though, doesn't it??

12. Why not just dig that a DUer needs a break?

At least you spared them the "don't let the door hit you" thing.

21. You know...

The fucking news lately sucks so hard that even DU can no longer be a place of solace.

I really wouldn't use facetiousness when a fellow DUer is reaching out for some sort of comfort.

I'm close to that point myself. But I just wrote this song:

"Always to first to extend my hand, but when I needed help... everybody ran
I'd save you from drowning, do whatever I can but when I slipped myself... everybody ran

I've been trying to do the next right thing
Hoping for the good karma that it's gonna have to bring
But you know that it's all a mind fuck
Dissatisfactory luck

Looking for tomorrow it's another day
Watch me trip on the things I say
Safety's a luxury... when the current drags you out to sea..."


It's a jangle-pop tune - needs more stanzas.
