This question already has an answer here:
I know this sounds really weird, but I don't want access to my Stack Exchange account for a while, but I would like to keep it to use in the future. Is it possible for the SE team to freeze my account?
It is like this: I like SE. I am beginning to feel I like it a bit too much. In order to make sure that participating on SE does not have a negative impact on other priorities, I have decided to put my activity on hold. This brings me to a position in which it is a choice between having my account frozen somehow, or deleting it. I really don't want to delete my account, as I have just made it over 2k rep; I would lose all of my rep, badges and privileges, and have to start all over again from scratch.
That brings me back to the question: Is there any way possible to have my account locked or frozen?
