For god sakes will someone cancel her account? No one should be forced to be here!
And let me go on record as saying I think it sucks that you have to contact anybody to deactivate your account. I think you should be able to click a button and poof!

I echo what Diana Dahlberg and others have said.  Why cancel it?  We cannot do this on our own. It must be done by an AR staffer.  Email support@activerain.com

I wish you all the best.

The only way to delete your account is through support.  I think if you spend some time browsing the ActiveRain website, reading and writing blog posts, you would find great value here.  Happy Summer!

The reason to cancel is because my email address appears as ActiveRain and recepients believe it is spam. That is why. Perhaps the better question is “why does the ActiveRain site make it so inconvenient or impossible to delete an account.?”.

     With respect:

     If you cannot get the account deleted (AR Staff is overwhelmed lately), then delete every post and comment that you have made.  Change your profile picture to a silhoutte, change your name to "Account Closed", then change your contact information and email address.
