I came across the site from Google yesterday , I seen some good questions on here so i tried to join up because I am a music educator and it was the only way I could see to give information as an answer. I joined I answered a few questions. Then had some bizarre interactions where my comments got deleted just for trying to type information in a comment to someone other than the original o.p. that was unusual , next in the bottom portion of the page it was telling me I used too many characters trying to response to another person. All these bizarre restrictions and unnecessary acts of Censorship then I got a message I cannot respond to questions because it said I did not give proper answers? So I just want my account banned earned my personal information erased and banned where I cannot return . The arbitrary and unusual Censorship and control mechanisms of the logistics of this particular site do not suit my philosophy of integrity, dignity respect, honor. I wish to have no part in whatever this is . ( as these random attributes of dictatorship have no scientific connection to the sharing of information in the specific category I originally wished to partake it ( sharing information about music and music theory ,musicology, and interacting with those involved in music in a free open domain. Thank you for your time .

    For what it's worth, I'd invite you to reconsider, because you have some answers that are quite good! I remember well how strange everything felt when I first got here; the site didn't seem to operate in the same way as other sites I'd visited, and it seemed that there were a lot of rules for how everything was supposed to be run. But I quickly got into the swing of things, and I really enjoy it here. I think you'd have a lot to offer us if you were to decide to stay!

    This site is like a limerick or a haiku or a 12-bar blues. Certain rules of form are required, and the rules might seem arbitrary, but it's nothing personal, no harm intended. Oct 27, 2020 at 22:19

    I'd also like to invite you to reconsider. I didn't notice much unusually here except that I had to wait a bit to post links. (Probably an anti-bot procedure.)

    I suggest you read the tour and some other posts from the help center! I too think you have much to share, but the site is what it is because of its rules, which may take some time to get used to.

We're sorry to see you go ... Anyway, you can initiate account deletion yourself, by following this link which is mentioned in the Help Center article 'How do I delete my account?'. The community can't help you with this.

  • Thank you , I wasn't aware I appreciate that,thanks for the kind comments.

  • @MMJ2020 I got here via Stack Overflow (I'm working in software development) and the other sites in the network. The system (and perhaps even the community) is optimized for objective Q&As without much room for opinions (unless they're backed up with reference). If you don't have such a background, it can take a while to get used to. We totally understand that!

  • I had answers deleted simply becuase other didn't read the information inside or understand it .( granted it was long winded info contained highly condensed information within)
