How to delete your Metafilter account

From their FAQ it becomes apparent that you cannot really delete your account. It's more like account deactivation, and your data is retained.

TIP good to know

Publicly visible text/images often aren't properly deleted even when you succeed in deleting an account. Try editing or deleting them manually before deleting the account itself. If you're unsure what happens to your tracks: this can be found mostly in the Terms of Service/Privacy Policy; otherwise you can always contact Metafilter and ask personally. By the way, deletion requests don't necessarily mean your data will actually be deleted (e.g. due to legal obligations).

TIP Remove third-party logins

If you signed up for Metafilter using a third-party login such as Facebook or Twitter, you probably want to revoke all access from Metafilter. Click the icon below to find out how.
