Is there a way I can delete my account and all previous posts? Is this something a moderator could do?

Nope. Your posts (and especially the replies don't belong to you - read the ToS).

"By registering and posting on City-Data.com's Forums you grant owners of City-data.com forum a perpetual, royalty-free, non-exclusive right to license, use, modify, or publish your posts in any media and manner whatsoever."

FYI: even if something is "deleted" - in reality it isn't. It stays on servers forever. That means - everything you ever posted on the Internet, and deleted, it's still there. People can search for, and they will find it.
Make sure to post on Internet only stuff you never wish to be deleted, because it can't be done. Period.

If you wish, just stop posting, and with the time people will forget about you...

There is also no way to delete an account on a forum. It is against our terms of service and it is not possible technically. An account can be banned but not deleted.
