In Stack Overflow, how do I exit the site? If I click "delete" from the user home page my account is deleted. I can't find "sign out". Please tell me.

(I am not leave,just clear cookie,but I can't find "sign out",so I think "Delete" is "sign out",so I have a try but my account is deleted.)

    To be fair, this is a bit buried in the UI now! Could we not have a little icon in the header? Feb 26, 2014 at 14:08

Here you go, click on the menu bar:

P.S.: Although I answer this, on the opposite, you are supposed to stay here... forever! I rather regard it well designed in this way to keep you always alive once born. :P

    That won't really log him out of the website. Follow the step above and click 'Log Out' button again @LiuBinqiang. :P

Follow herohuyongtao's step and click on 'Log Out' button as shown above.

But remember. That is your last chance and there is NO turning back.

You take the blue Log Out pill. The story ends, you shake uncontrollably with deep fear and regret wondering what you've just done.

You take the red cancel pill. You stay in Stack Overflow wonderland and I show you how addictive Stack Overflow can be.

Remember all I am offering is the truth - Nothing more.

    -1. The "Log Out" button in your answer doesn't work. Feb 26, 2014 at 15:29
