If account deleting means deleting all comments, it shouldn't be allowed, as it breaks conversation history

I agree with this in principle, but since it's possible to delete single comments manually it would just make it more inconvenient and I don't see much point in that either.

Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be any point in deleting an account.

The account is associated with the user's email account and the user might not want to leave the account with its associated information floating around if he/she doesn't intend to use the account anymore. I for one think that account deletion is a useful feature in general and shouldn't be disallowed.
