Please follow Jeff's directions here to delete your account:

How can I delete my account?

Basically, you need to edit your profile to say "Please delete me" and email [email protected] telling them your user ID (which is 47886) and that you'd like your account to be deleted.

As far as your posts are concerned, I don't believe they will be automatically deleted. The community, however, will work through them to clean them up and remove them as necessary.

    +1 - this advice will have your account deleted. If you wish to remove all posts, you can delete them yourself. A user is always able to delete his or her own comments or answers.

    @MarkM, that is not entirely true. You can not self delete answers once they have have been accepted. Although this restriction will not be a problem for vgv8.
