Why not just delete the account instead of anonymising it?

Did you read the links @dr460nf1r3 posted?

The reasons are all explained quite well as to why this is preferable when operating a public forum.

Not all posts can even be deleted to begin with; Discourse doesn’t let you because it causes certain issues with the software.

Besides, just take a look at Reddit if you want to see what happens to a forum-style website when users can just go ahead and delete all of their posts if they feel like it.

Spoiler

The website–which in the case of Reddit wasn’t exactly a bastion of valuable content to begin with–becomes absolutely worthless garbage.
