Just log out and leave. If you hadn't made these two posts, nobody would even have known you'd joined. If you really want rid of your account, read the very obvious sticky thread at the top of the page.

Some good advice in some of the follow up comments to that link.

The situation gets significantly different after GDPR comes into force in spring 2018, as you then have a right to erasure. Aka ‘right to be forgotten’. This means complete removal of all personal data. However this will be quite complex with blogs like HA, as the blog owners probably have a business need to keep (I.e. ‘process’) your identity for as long as (and no longer than) they can be taken to court for anything you write and they publish.

Seems that there should be a separate thread on GDPR.
