Are all my forum comments deleted when I deactivate my account?

That's what I want--complete obliteration--but I want to be 100% sure before I deactivate, since I'm not sure how I would be able to check once I have no account. I'm unhappy with the way these forums are used and run, and I want to completely disappear from the site.

Your comment's will remain, but they won't be associated with your username any more - as susanstory says, they will be listed under "deactivated user".

A quick search of the forum threw up this thread - note that there are a couple of comments from a deactivated user.

I've seen some comments where it says "deactivated user" but the comment they wrote was still there.

    I only know that the discussions you post are not deleted.

    Thank you all. I did try to search the forums, but I got too many hits for the keywords I used. It didn't seem sensible to read every single thread result. Of course, there is no support team for Duolingo or method of contacting them--even moderator judgment is erratic--so I suppose I can't do anything about anything. Thanks again.

    The only thing you can do is to access your activity stream, scroll down to the very end (but that takes a long time), access every discussion from there and delete each comment independently. But that will take a huge amount of time.

    I'll just finish the three trees I'm working on, ignore the forums, delete my comments as I get email notifications for discussions I'm following, and go through my activity stream for a few minutes each day. I'm tired of the trolls.

    I'm sorry you are going through this, and I can totally relate. I do not check the discussions nearly as often as I used to for the same reason.
