Today, I did something that I just haven’t cared enough about to get around to: I attempted to delete my Myspace account. And by “attempt” I mean that Myspace wouldn’t let me. When I joined, back in like 2005 (which is late by Myspace standards), I used my university email account. That address has since been deleted—the university gives you 6 months after you graduate, then they remove the account altogether.
So, today, when I tried to surgically remove this
Myspace mole from the face of the internets it wouldn’t work. It sent a
“deletion confirmation” email to my university address. Fine, I’ll change my
contact email on Myspace and we’ll be done with it. Not fine, Myspace sent a
change of address confirmation email to my now defunct university email
account. Which I can’t access anymore. No confirmation, no delete-y Myspace.
So, now, I’m fucking stuck with this thing. For life. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s still there after I’m dead. And I’m willing to bet that I’m not the only person in this predicament. If anyone has any suggestions, let’s hear ‘em.
