What's with the influx of "old" newbies who want their accounts canceled? :confused:

It's all of the emails that are going out to registered users. They may not have been active, but have an account. Once they saw the security email they came back deciding that they don't use the site and wish to have their accounts canceled.

Yes, reading the thread, I had assumed that it was something along those lines, and was somehow related to the security breach.

In light of the recent events involving the forum and the fact that I don't use the forum any more, kindly delete my account.

From the Forum FAQ:

How do I cancel my account?

There is normally no need to cancel a MacRumors account. If you expect not to need to post at MacRumors, you can simply stop visiting our site. There is nothing you need us to do. Under our Privacy Policy, we won't email you or release your contact information. Inactive accounts are of little consequence. The advantage is that if you change your mind, perhaps because you have an Apple-related question, you can return to MacRumors, log in, and post.

For additional privacy, you are welcome to remove the information in your User Profile (Instant Messaging names, Location, etc.) since this information is visible to the public for both active and inactive MacRumors accounts.

If you have subscribed to any forums or threads, have asked for email notifications, and are no longer interested in receiving those messages, delete the subscriptions on your List Subscriptions page.

If there are exceptional circumstances, such as an employment contract, that require that your account be canceled to prevent you from logging in, use the Contact Form to let us know. We'll probably direct you to this FAQ section unless you tell us you've already read it!

Canceling an account does not remove previously made posts from the forums, nor quotes of those posts by other members. If you are concerned about information in one of your previous posts (e.g., it contains too much personal information), you can edit the post yourself or report it to the moderators and ask that it be deleted. We strongly discourage you from editing or deleting large numbers of previous posts, since that may leave thread discussions "broken" or confusing to those who read them in the future.

If you wish to have your account deleted, please read the FAQ under 'How do I cancel my account' and then send your request to the admins via the Contact form. They will respond to you within a few days.

I can't believe there isn't an option to do it yourself :facepalm:
