Let me delete myself
How many web accounts do you have? Not just email accounts… but all those websites that forced you to register just so that you could check it out? I must have hundreds :-).
Unfortunately some of this info gets googled 😦 I seriously wonder why? I’ll admit I never read the Terms & Conditions page… and I wonder of they make me agree to this sort of thing… and so if you know the usual username that I use everywhere (and you all know why I’d like a common username everywhere), it’s very easy to google and find out what links am I storing in http://del.icio.us or http://digg.com or other profile info like birthdates, personal websites etc. etc. 👿
Now, I am NOT actually cribbing about these websites making this info googlable. My grouse is that I did not get to choose what info I want to be googlable. I might want to share my Digg profile data with other Digg users, but maybe not the entire world!
Granted that putting in so many checks on which data should be googlable (that does seem more like a word than yahooable, doesn’t it :-P) might be asking too much. But ATLEAST… PLEASE LET ME DELETE MY ACCOUNT from the site itself and without having to send emails to the administrators!! I’ve been wanting to delete some user accounts that have been lying unused for so long… and I’ve been searching and searching, but there are no “Delete Account” links. Very few sites actually give this option.
