I did a 'retire' on the user and this issue. While it doesn't take the
issue out of the database, it does make it not show up in searches and
displays of issues. It appears you can still see it if you ask for it
by number, at least I could but I was logged as administrator. I defer
to someone more knowing as to how one could obliterate any traces of
it, if one can.

Somebody had to go to some trouble to do this, registering and then
confirming by email.
