I never did quite understand why people ask for deletions instead of just leaving a forum account idle...

They think deleting it will also delete their posts and content.
Properly, it should, but since [H] doesn't fall under any real privacy data laws, they do not need to, but deleting accounts is just nice to do sometimes versus leaving open old accounts, which say later gets comprised and now someone is posting as you...

Best thing would be to change the password to some stupid long password, change the email address to some temp. one and then move on if a site wont delete the actual account.

This, and when you ask for a deletion, they change the username, so no real way to link it back.
