At one time, I was participating in climateprediction.net, but due to that project hogging resources (to the extent that seti@home no longer would run), I disconnected from it. However, I still show statistics for climateprediction and my BOINC/seti@home start-up preferences are being read from climateprediction. In essence, I want to delete any reference to climateprediction in my BOINC account. The documentation either at BOINC or climateprediction gives no guidance. Any ideas? Thanks.

Change your name and email address on climateprediction to something at random.
Then it will no longer match that on your other projects.

The big question is why you want to delete your account. If you change your preferences on any project you are attached to (like SETI), the client will read prefs from it instead of CPDN, so I don't see why it's a problem that prefs source is currently CPDN. And if you get rid of the stats, your total credits will go down.
