Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

A friend of mine recently told me that if you search for my nickname on the internet, you will find my address on a map. I did the test and indeed, I had created an open street map for a course with my address on it. So I deleted my account because I don't want my address to be accessible to everyone, but even several days later my map is still available. I don't think this is normal and I want to fix the problem. Do you know a solution ?

Edit : I obviously create a new account to ask this question

People would need to know which "map" is found when you search for your nickname before being able to answer, and obviously you'll not want to post that here.

I'd suggest that you email data@openstreetmap.org so that we can answer your questions privately. For more on that group see https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Data_Working_Group .
