Hi Paul, sorry to see you go. We can deactivate the account and the powers that be then decide on deletion.
Deactivation effectively pulls it from the public view. But then all your posts will need to be preserved I would imagine.
If you can deactivate my account from your end before the Admins delete the account for good, i`ll have no problems with that.
It was a absolute privilege to have known you - i hope you enjoy your retirement :-)
Sincerely, best wishes,
