Deleting a user without deleting their comments

Hi,

Hoping someone can help.

I'm attempting to delete a user, but it won't let me as there are comments associated with that user.

I don't want to delete the comments, as I need them to keep an accurate history.

Does anyone know a workaround to this?

Thanks!

Would it help to make the user 'Inactive' instead of deleting them?

The usual advice is not to delete users. Make them inactive and remove them from all groups and roles. Deleting them destroys your accurate history.
