How can I either block my name from being public in my eham account (I'd rather sign the message than be found in a search engine) or, at worst, cancel my account thus eventually removing that info from the public?  Seems like the ability to cancel an account or change display name would be pretty standard.

Oh, and please don't brow-beat me about my preference, just can it be done and how would be nice.

Are you going to delete your name from your eHam bio? Smiley

And take the URL for your web site out of your bio? Smiley

Are you going to eliminate your eHam bio completely? Smiley

Are you going to remove your name from the FCC database, too? Smiley

hi Frank,

You need to close it and open a new one,
however, anything you have posted will be
archived here on eham as well as Google, QRZ,
your YouTube videos.

Are you... Are you..

I understand old posts will remain.  Removing everything from eHam would be fine.  Kinda like how you can choose to leave a Yahoo group.  Heck, even Yahoo.  I don't post here enough to need the account.  I don't see anywhere in my settings to cancel eHam accounts.  For those that recommended a forum search, perhaps I didn't use the right keywords.  Since you checked, have the link?

No, silly.

Thanks all.

If you don't want your name showing up, first thing I'd do is either change your account ID (or cancel and create a new one) to something other than your call if you wish to remain 'anonymous'. I would try to locate a member of the staff and ask your question with them to get the best possible answer.

There is no "cancel account" option.

Oh well.  Not that big-a-deal.  Consider the matter closed.
