How can I delete my account?

I ended up with 2 accounts because I couldnt delete this one. This is the account I dont want, and the one I wanted to use got banned for being a duplicate. I have searched and searched for the option to delete my account and I cant find it anywhere.

I also wanted to comment that I received and email about the duplicate account, which I replied to the very same day (within the hour) and I still got my preferred account deleted (instead of this one) on the grounds of not having replied to the email. Of course, with the banned account I cant go in and retrieve the email to prove I actually replied (although I think I emptied my sent items box a couple of days ago).

Well, some of the people here are important *to me* but that's really nowhere near the same as being important people in the main.


Socialbutterfly...
I know it is a lot easier for me to say this than it is for people to do (I mean you but also know that I am guilty of it too) BUT just ignore the folks who are rude. Even if they were rude this time, sometimes they have helpful things to say as well and you never know who will be the people you eventually see things eye-to-eye with as time goes on.

Not everyone has always been nice to me, after all, I have some hot-button issues and some of them are ones that people are particularly likely to be rude about but (for the most part) I've moved past it and gotten to know and / or had some interesting exchanges with some of the folks I found irritating to begin with.

In the end though, stick around or not as you choose, hopefully you settle into your chosen pursuits happily and well.

Re: How can I delete my account?

I there, I'm new here..I was wondering whether I can create a duplicate account. I earn 120k per year...and I bribed people to get my apartment in Geneva..can I just pay a mod to get a duplicate account? Also, I like living here in Sweden....but just where can I get some brown sugar?

Cheers

kind regards,
I've read the thread and you have to harden up a little. The replies you got on that financial advisors thread were based on a) forum history and b) people's experience.

Don't take it personally and do remember the loudest mouths on EF will tend to be the biggest puddy tats in real life. Even LiB!

Paying a mod to get your account deleted is completely unnaceptable, it's against social ethics, moral ethics, and against the law of physics.

You should be burried in the snow and stoned to death.
PS: do you smoke?*
*sorry for being intruisive, it's just to know if I can also call the police or not.

PS:
I've got the clever way for not going back here....

Edit the file
/etc/hosts
(in system32 folder for windows), and add the line:

127.0.0.1 www.englishforum.ch

(edit: wrote some crap )
save, et voila!

poor old Corsebou.....no wonder IT jobs are hard to come by.

hosts file entry would surely be

Not to mention in Windows, it's usually c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts Or even better, %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Yeah I quickly replied, the host file syntax was approximate

Or even better, type "windows R" shortcut, and type "drivers" (without "").
Et voila, even faster than typing the full path, or system root, environment variable, etc...
