amdad Function to permanent deletion is not important for this case
I agree; the part you quoted was replying to the comments dehbuff more than anything.
Darmawan I still can't grasp your arguments not to allow users to delete their own account.
I think that's because you're assuming that our use cases are the same as yours. I set up my forums as a venue for important business discussions among our company's staff members. If there's a chance that one of our staff could decide to nuke her account (whether out of spite, or just to see what that button does) and thereby leave gaping holes in conversations that need to remain intact to be useful to our business activities, then yes, I'd really like to be able to prevent that.
(I'm assuming here that account deletion would result in posts being deleted; I'm not at all sure that's the case, and I'm not willing to try it out with my account.)
It would be best if admins had the option of disabling the account deletion function entirely. After all, while it may be YOUR account, it's on THEIR site. You can create an account and post on their site because they chose to let you do so; why should deletion be any different?
