So occasionally we get someone who comes to us and asks that they have their stories removed from the Internet one one of the Archives that I host on Squidge.org - and I've always complied. But recently I found something intriguing on AO3 and wanted to try and replicate it.
Basically, if you want to abandon your stories and remove all traces of your identity from them on AO3, there's something called "Orphan Account". What that does is take all of your stories and strip them of your identifying information, and attribute them to a generic account called "Orphan Account". That way your stories stay available for people to read, but yet they are detached from your identify. Your account can be deleted, but your stories stay.
What do people think? Good idea? Bad? Thoughts?
