Suppose you want to delete your Web Applications account. Go to http://webapps.stackexchange.com/help/user-deletion and fill the form.

Replace http://webapps.stackexchange.com/ with any site you want your profile to be deleted.

Sadly your posts won't be deleted as mentioned in this meta post:

Content you've posted on the site is owned by you but licensed to Stack Exchange, and you therefore cannot request that it be deleted with your account.

More information can be found at this meta stackexchange question.

Prior to this people use to change their About Me section to please delete me and send an email to team+<site>@stackexchange.com. But you shouldn't do this now, maybe they won't reply.

When a user is deleted what is showed in the content that is created as asker or answerer? It her avatar and ID disappear? –  PHPst Feb 9 '13 at 14:04
@PHPst As soon as your account is deleted the avatar is reset to a silhouette and link to your profile is removed. You can see this post to see such an account. –  Santosh Kumar Feb 9 '13 at 20:08
