Erm... how do the moderators know you're not a hacker, maliciously asking for a hacked account to be deleted?

Because a hacker, knowing not to use the same user name and password at two different websites, would probably not be concerned that a compromise at one would place his account at the other one at risk, lol?

It actually has a lot of meaning. Erm.../Um... = Wait. Let's not be hasty, but pause and think about this and maybe look at it a different way. (Look at all the words it can save.)
