Cancelling one's Myspace® account is as easy as 1-2-3... 4...5! In all, after clicking on "cancel my account" in the account preferences screen...
...I was asked again four more times to verify if I truly wanted to cancel my precious myspace account.
In one step, I was asked to leave feedback in a text box describing my reasons for leaving myspace, to which I offered that myspace was once a unique, low-key medium of communication, and has now become a perverse venue for advertising and identity theft. (Not to mention the false, vague sense of belonging that comes from such immediate, yet impersonal interaction that myspace has blighted upon my generation).
Then a confirmation email was sent to my email address, asking me to again confirm that I wished to delete my account, after which, I was informed that my account would be gone "within 48 hours." Jeepers!
I've registered to vote, signed up for and cancelled credit cards in far fewer steps, and it may indeed be easier to obtain "legal" resident status in this country than it is to do away with an existing myspace account. Speaking of which, there is a May Day rally with your name on it somewhere in your town!
