I cannot find how to close this VM community account as it's pointless and childish

Where is the "Close Account" link for removing myself from the "virgin media I need a badge community"?

there isn't a delete button, you edit your accounts notifications to never for everything so wouldn't get any messages from the community, the forum mods might be able to suspend your account, this will thread/message will get a reply in a day or so by them.

That's sort of useful. Would it be quicker to just keep posting lots of swear words as I would rather it be suspended than open and still associated with me?

I know it seems harsh, but it makes me really angry with myself for not checking first if the site was worth joining, I cannot stand and will not tolerate the condescending badge nonsense.  I write my own script, I don't appreciate insulting nonsense, and the last thing I need is a badge. They are for shop workers and the Police, which I am neither.

A lot of people, including me, agree with your disdain for the "badge nonsense".  It has been created by a bunch yah-OKs who have little concept of what matters.

But, if you chuck in your account, you're tilting at all the Community members who are here to help when things go wrong, including for you. Do think again about this and by all means have a tilt at the ridiculous badge system. 

Btw, put up with the badges and ranks for long enough and you'll get to be an Alessandro Howzyerfather like me!
