    You can deactivate your account, but everything you've written here is the property of Yahoo! and will be in their archives forever.  I mean, if you had so much personal opinion to analyze, categorize and market, would you delete it?  Data makes the world go 'round.  Ask Facebook.

    You have to close your Yahoo account (your YA account isn't separate from that). 

    Close your Yahoo account   

    1-Sign in to the Yahoo account termination page. (https://yahoo.mydashboard.oath.com/delete-my-accou...

    2-Read the info on terminating your account.

    3-Use the on-screen prompts to continue.

    I mean, it's pretty easy to get your account banned.

    Simplest way is to not sign  in to your Yahoo account.

    Then 2 things will happen.  You will have peace of mind and after 12 months  goes by your account will be considered abandoned and shut down

    Go to the reference and follow the directions. Remember, you must never log in again for it to take effect (at least four months). Logging in indicates you want it back.

    That answers your question...........

    but once you do so.......everything you've posted here stays.  

    Once you post, those posts become the property of Yahoo. 

    Deleting your account,  only stops YOU from posting more. 

    It does not erase what you've already posted.

    It's a pity that you lack enough self control to just walk away and think anyone here cares if you leave or stay.

  • You can not delete just the Yahoo Answer account.  What you would have to d is delete your entire Yahoo Account.  That includes email, sports, finance, groups, and every other feature Yahoo has.  Also, remember that we will not close our posts. just your profile; le associated with that account.
