This is my first time using the new interface, so I'm sorry that I don't know how to namecheck people and ended up posting the above notice twice. In answer to some of the comments above:

If you think I came here to rant, please recall that I came here to delete my account, and was thwarted.

If you think 'microblogging is transient' then I don't want to use any microblogging platform you would create. I don't even feel the need to explain why -- this is a no-brainer.

If you think I just don't understand free software, maybe free software just doesn't understand me and will therefore never win me over as a user -- didja ever think that maybe I have absolutely no obligation to be here? That's the way I think and the way most people think. But of course that isn't true, because plenty of people who make free software understand the importance of canonical URLs, in fact there is pretty much no one on the planet who is more anal about the importance of preserving canonical URLs than the free software crowd. I'd be VERY surprised if I were the first to complain about this.

As for other complaints about, about those I have no clue. I am using it for the first time yesterday and today.

Finally to Evan, thanks for the response, I do appreciate the personal interaction. The tests I did showed that both notice and conversation URLs were broken. You say you tried to perserve them, it clearly didn't work very reliably, this is months into your product cycle and the low priority you have shown this issue, even if you didn't intend for it to happen, combined with the inability to delete my account at this stage, kind of shows me where your bread is buttered and without wanting to get into a big debate over it (I don't want to return here really) your priorities do not match what I would want to see in a developer. Please do delete my account along with the others who have asked, to whatever extent possible in your system. I'm not going to stomp my feet if there are vestiges left over -- I just don't want to publically appear to be an active user anymore, because that signifies support.
