How to delete a Reddit Username or Account

For all intent and purposes Reddit is the place to share stuff with the rest of the internet. Sometimes however you do make a username and post something that backfired at you. You want to now get rid of that username or Reddit account and start afresh. Reddit allows people to join the site by just choosing a username and password. It is not necessary to associate an account with an email address. This is taken advantage of by users and if a user wants to post something but stay anonymous -- it is very possible to that. But if there comes a time that you would like to rid yourself of a particular account or username this is how to do it. Deleting a username will not get rid of the associated posts. To do that you would need to signin under your username and delete each post individually. There is no way to mass delete posts. So remember to delete posts under a particular username, you would need to manually do it. Once your done, you can then get rid of the username and that particular account. Deleted account are not recoverable.
