I would think that would be a question you could e-mail to the admins, Mr. Crabtree.

In short, you don't. You can be unsubscribed, but participation in this forum is voluntary and you agree that the forum "owns" your posts to do with as the administrator sees fit. Such is the nature of public posting on the Internet. That is why one should always be aware of what they are posting because, thanks to archival software and chaches used by search engines, the posting sins of one's past can reappear years later, much to their chagrin.

Deleting people because they are piqued disrupts threads and is ultimately an exercise in futility for all concerned because of the above mentioned items. If you don't want your posts to be seen, don't post. It really is that simple. Such is the wild and wooly, wacky, wonderful, winsome nature of the world wide web.

So by your logic above, non-participation is also voluntary, no?
Why am I then unable, after many attempts, to 'retire'?
Please explain.

I'm not sure what the issue is here Peter. If you set all your account notifications to not receive anything then you won't see anything from this forum unless you log on. Then if you don't browse here by yourself and voluntarily post here by yourself, you are effectively retired. What is it that you mean when you say you have been unable to "retire"?

Non-participation is certainly "voluntary" if we can speak of a negative in such a manner. However, what we do lingers. We do not nor is it a legal "right" to simply disappear without a trace. There is an important lesson here, I think, that pertains to repentance. What we do is not made like it never happened, the effects still linger whether we want them to or not and they do not go away even if we threaten "legal action", especially on the Internet (let the reader understand).
