    You can’t fully delete your Q&A account even if you delete your yahoo account your Q&A will stay in yahoo archive available for searching and browsing. But you can make it invisible with the following steps.

    * Blank out your avatar to the grey silhouette.

    * Change your nickname or just leave it blank.

    * Close any links to your 360, and email.

    * Delete your open questions and answers.

    * Set your Network and Q&A to private.

    * Delete your contacts and fans. To delete fans block then unblock.

    Then just leave it. After you've applied the alterations no search will find your Q&A,s. You can then close that yahoo account and open a new one if you want.

    To delete your yahoo account clicks this link.

    I'm thinking about closing my Y/A account also. I answered a question honestly and clean, no name calling or anything and it was short. I got a notice that they deleted my answer.

    Due to the holidays I have about 135 people here so far and they all said that Y/A is wrong in their choice of deleting that answer. Now 15 of my family members want to know how to cancel this Y/A account also. Their offended at what happen to me.

    If you find out how to delete this account please let me know, I'm seriously thinking about it. If I do I'll never use Yahoo for anything ever again. I'll go to MSN as my home page.
