How do I close my account?
I would like my email address removed from your database please.

Thank you.

Edit:
Some feedback:
I got a little too much spam, and couldn't work out how to opt out.
Also, I don't like the adverts injected between posts that are not clearly marked as adverts.
For example: " I agree {link}".
This is just click bait. I understand that the site is funded by adverts, but let's not trick users into downloading malware.
It was this type of behaviour that killed source forge, with advertisements that were just "download" buttons.

Obviously, this response is not for the OP, as his account has already been suspended, but for anyone else with the same query ...

To stop emails, click "my profile" link above, click "preferences", and for the first question "may the ranch send an occasional email?", choose "no". There are also preferences related to emails send because of watch lists, PMs, etc. -- these are not advertisements, but there are preferences to disable all of these too.

Also, this is a link from a sponsor that we've vetted. It is NOT malware.
