If a user deletes their account on MO will all the associated accounts on other StackExchange sites be deleted as well?

    $\begingroup$ From what I saw on MSE, the answer is no. You can safely delete just one profile. $\endgroup$ – Asaf Karagila Aug 15 '13 at 5:39

    $\begingroup$ I agree. I deleted one of my SE accounts and the others were not affected. $\endgroup$ – Joel Reyes Noche Aug 15 '13 at 7:09

    $\begingroup$ I can confirm what Joel says. I believe I created an economics or quant SE account and deleted it shortly after with no affect on my other accounts. $\endgroup$ – Ryan Budney Aug 15 '13 at 8:35

    $\begingroup$ I hope you are not considering to delete your MO-account for some reason. $\endgroup$ – user9072 Aug 15 '13 at 16:07

No, the other accounts would remain unless the user also requests that they are deleted, through those other accounts. Some have already commented with their experience seeing this happen on other sites, and this authoritative answer on meta.stackoverflow.com confirms that an account deletion requested on one SE site affects only the account on that specific site.
