The name of the post was something - "Evil by design". I can't find the post. It was on the front page.

Edit: Find it but it returns 404 https://www.designernews.co/stories/105945-impossible-to-delete-account--evil-by-design

    Hey Carlos!

    We removed the story because we successfully deleted his account, which then caused the link to throw off a 500 error. Hope that provides some additional context!

      Why can't members delete their own accounts?

        Most can, but we've seen a few people run into errors with it. We're working on it.

        That last one was a thread that ended over a year ago through the support channel and for some reason fell through the cracks. It was my fault, and we have since deleted his account.
