In case you missed it the first time, deleting the userpages of my
accounts would eliminate the following:

* The ownership statement for OrphanBot.
* The description of what OrphanBot does and does not do.
* OrphanBot's current task status.
* OrphanBot's current development status.
* The statement that all my edits are multi-licensed into the public domain.

Also, in the past, it would have eliminated:

* My criteria for the use of fair-use images in featured articles (now
mostly part of [[Wikipedia:Fair use]]).
