What harms it does to you if you keep it active anyway?

Mike's reasons for wanting to delete his ohloh account are none of our business.

I'm trying to delete my account with no success. This site does "networking" the wrong way, and its metrics system is flawed. I have been once at 8 Kudos, now I'm considered "simple mortel", this has not been fixed for months now. Even the administrator contacts are very well hidden from public. I feel they try to retain users at any cost, to the limit of legality. I'm convinced now signing on this site was a bad idea.

Please let me delete my account and all my managed projects. And... get a real job!

Me neither. They managed to hide it from public. Even google is unable to find it! ... I think it simply doesn't exist.

You can have your account deleted by sending an email to or from the email address you have registered with on Ohloh.

Account holders may now delete their own accounts. Please visit and scroll to the bottom of the page for the "Delete Account" button.

Please note that deleting your account on Ohloh:

  • This won't change the actual projects you've worked on.
  • Your committer ID goes back into the "unclaimed" pool.
  • Your edits to the site will now be by "Anonymous User"
  • You can rejoin and re-claim committer IDs but not previous edits.

Yeah, Ofcourse, most of such sites don't allows to deactivate the account and it can be done manually by sending email to the admin.
