#157impossible to delete own user accound via web-ui

self-explanatory I think : there is no option under account settings to delete ones user account. usually such options are kept under security settings.

  • This shouldn't be too difficult to implement, but at least for now, it shouldn't be possible to do more than delete the user's directory and mark the account as deactivated in couchdb. If the user's couchdb document were to be deleted, someone else could register under the same name and inherit their repo subscriptions, memberships in various repos, and issue comments. This would be a security problem unless we somehow stop using the username as an identifier which may actually not be a good idea (because of imposters and such).

    tl;dr: This would require an additional field in the CouchDB user documents for marking a user as deactivated.
