Websites Need "Delete Account"

a delete account option, why is that so hard?

Trying to prune the ancient junk out of my password manager has made me realize how many websites don’t simply have a “please purge me from your system” option. It’s really frustrating. Like I still have a login, to a text-based online multi-player game from 10+ years ago, site still runs, but whoever used to maintain it, has long since moved on with their lives. However, no “Delete Account” button. Why not?

I think it’s easy for programmers to get detached and forget about the human side of the systems they are tasked with creating.
