I'm sure that most often it's to prop up self-control, when "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak" so to speak. I remember two cases that were different though:-
i) someone applied for a job that involved "vetting" like they might do for the military, and this person wanted to delete everything to do with MB
ii) what I consider sadder, and more sinister, was a person who was worried about their parents and/or church discovering their online self.

Not saying that any of the above apply to Cuthbert. My guess is that in his case it's out of remorse and self-loathing after posting anti-Biden propaganda
(That's a joke, Cuthbert, if you are still lurking. I'm sorry you have left us, and I won't forget the chats we've had over the years: especially your invention of an Architecture Thread, for which I am very grateful.)

I was a little shocked to see Cuthbert's account disabled as well not to mention Micshazam. I actually banned myself from the writing forum to make a statement about the politics there (It got pretty ugly at the top and I was in the know, then I wasn't). Anyway, I guess people have different reasons.

Anyway, miss you both, guys.

I don't know what Cuthbert's reason was, but not all actions can be explained by a practical purpose. Maybe it feels like some kind of closure or something. I'm sad he's left but I hope it was a good desicion for him

I'm an Aston Martin supporter, if it's any consolation.

Huh? You lost me. I don't shake or stir my cars, generally.

Oops.

I forgot, he popularized the brand, didn't he? My bad, I'll admit I'm not a big Bond fan. I've only seen the Daniel Craig ones.

I requested a (temp) ban when I was in the very last months of my masters thesis. I just wanted to remove distractions that might keep me from working.
