Not every service provider makes it easy to delete your account once you're done using it. As a result of this, Robb Lewis has provided a guide on how to delete your account from a variety of services that he calls JustDelete.Me.
After seeing a few tweets about how difficult it can be to delete your Skype account and then hearing that Netflix flat-out wont delete your details I decided to build JustDelete.me.
JustDelete.Me is a directory of urls to delete your account from web services. (Yes, I am aware how terrible that description is. If youve got a better one, let me know). Services are marked either easy, medium or hard depending on how difficult it is to delete that account. Those marked as hard have additional information on how to completely remove your account, such as Skype which requires you to contact customer services to do so.
