Would it be possible for the administration here to delete my account, and all of my posts and topics I've created? If so can this be done as soon as possible, please.

Much thanks.

We generally do NOT do this.

Why not? Because we take the time to answer these questions for free, and answering a question for one person provides information that can then both be there for everyone thereafter, and save us time and effort in answering the same question another time. In threads a user has started where others have participated, deleting them also removes their responses as well.

Moreover, it sets a precedent that isn't so hot: Scarleteen is NOT a funded organization, and deleting a user's posts takes valuable time.

In *some* scenarios (where, for instance a user may have valid personal safety concerns) we'll do it, but as a general rule, that is not something we will do.

What's your particular issue here?
