Shouldn't users be able to delete their accounts whenever they want?

What’s the difference between anonymizing an account and creating our own “anonymous” account with a random username, a disposable email address, etc?

What about the identification of someone by aggregating information from all their posts? What if their original username is quoted many times in many posts (rake task search & replace string…?)?

I understand why someone would like to completely remove all their posts, and I understand the concurring issues for the forum’s readability.
