re: two sentence horror story 

@lynnesbian idea for a cancela service company.

You file a cancellation form with the details and they make the call and take care of it for you.

two sentence horror story 

@lynnesbian classic dark pattern, it's sad that it's fucking real. some time ago i started to use a password manager, and tried to close old accounts and such... in some cases i couldn't do it, admins @ website dot com didn't bother to reply to my "pls delete my account" emails, and no option to call anyone. just stare at the void and pray to meteors for crashing and burning those servers

@lynnesbian then they go "alright prove that you own the account and we'll delete it" like people go around trying to maliciously deleting peoples accounts

either that or they try to convince you otherwise by saying "you can just turn off marketing emails if you don't want to hear from us" while they keep collating and holding information about you
