I just read your taking requests here to delete accounts. 

I'd like mine deleted as well. 


I have contacted support by e-mail and have tried to chat with support.

Nobody answers at either one. I've been trying for two months now, too. 


Hopefully, next year, you all will decide to make a delete option or least deactivate option on user accounts. There used to be an option to keep your handle out from the directory.  I don't know why that was removed.
