How do I delete my account?

Some history – waaaaay back in 2008 Facebook was what all the cool kids were using. Friendster was already collecting dust and Myspace seemed to have lost its luster. And classmates...? Whatever.

I was browsing my Sent Items folder this morning looking for something when I stumbled on this gem. I sent the last correspondence in this conversation on 12 February, 2008.

Apparently I had decided to try out this thing called Facebook and after signing up and not understanding it I wanted out. Hahahaha... I crack myself up. Anyway, here is that email:

Thanks Diego,

I just signed up to see what all the fuss is about and don’t use facebook so please do totally delete my account and confirm that this has been done with a reply.
