There are a number of reasons we don't allow users to delete these kinds of messages and information from their account. Most importantly, if users were able to delete visitor messages, for example, it would be much more difficult for moderators to do their jobs in making sure that the system isn't used inappropriately.
As for deleting actual accounts, similar problems arise. Even administrators don't delete user accounts, as doing so can leave gaps in threads, as well as removes any information connected to your account that we may need to access in the future.
If you ever want to leave, you can just remove all your personal information (if you have any) on your profile, and it'll immediately become pretty difficult for anyone to recognize you.

If you delete an account it would be very easy to start new as a totally new person, with no trace of your old account on the site. We don't want that happening.

Always here to help. Don't hesitate to PM me.
