Account Deletion

I don't want my HN account anymore and leaving a dead account hanging around like a bad toenail is simply untidy.

Am I missing the delete button somewhere or has the most straightforward DELETE operation in history still not been implemented on hacker news?

As a counterpoint, it drives me nuts when I see a graveyard of deleted comments on reddit. Do you want all your activity to vanish or do you just want to disown the username?

I think a fair compromise would be to simply delete the account name associated with comments.
