For the love of God, please delete my fucking account. It's been over a month. Please.

I just want to not have it be here anymore, I want to stop having my votes public and just make a new account on another site that has more privacy and better features (like automatic account deletion).

Do I need to log out first? What's taking so long? Why does it even go into a manual queue?

Please just delete my account.

@willya No, I'm bitching about one basic function of the site (voting being public) being obfuscated and the other (account deletion) being intentionally withheld. If you don't care, don't read it.

@cloudless I want it gone. There is a button to make it gone that doesn't work. I would abandon it, but it's possible that it could be compromised while I'm not actively monitoring it. It's much preferable for it to be actually deleted, as promised (but not delivered) by the stupid button I pushed over a month ago.

@MajorHavoc I'm Canadian, I don't think we're very good about privacy here. I sent a contact form a few days ago. My next step is emailing as many addresses as I can find.

@Damaskox I don't want my votes to be public. I wasn't aware that this was the case until recently, but the concept makes me uncomfortable and this limitation wasn't obvious when I signed up (July 2023, just after the Reddit API changes).

Regardless of whether you believe that's a valid reason, I feel like I should be able to delete an online account easily and promptly if that's what I choose to do, no matter my motivation for doing so.

Medical ethics organization lodges complaint over monkey deaths in Elon Musk’s Neuralink brain chip trials as company is looking for human volunteers to test its implants (english.elpais.com)

Neuralink was founded in 2017 and began animal experiments 12 months later. Last year, a Reuters investigation indicated that the company had slaughtered around 1,500 animals, including more than 280 sheep, pigs, and monkeys, which suffered from serious disorders before dying. But it wasn’t until September 10 that Musk...

Regardless of any wrongdoing that occurred during the animal trials, the way that Musk is marketing this and talking about it on X concerns me deeply.

It seems genuinely irresponsible to hype up a medical technology like this when it appears that the animal trials (and the implanted device itself) were not safe and effective.

I really hope the FDA did their due diligence when they cleared the device for human trials. The consequences of not doing so would be devastating for those affected by quadriplegia and ALS and who start experiencing unwanted side effects of implantation or device malfunctions.
