Myspace Unwilling to Accept Breakup

Just like us, radnauseum is sick of myspace and wants off the Similac merry-go-round. He’s being trying to cancel for three days now, with no success. Which is odd because we too, after clicking all the right cancellation buttons, never got that email in our inbox to let us remove our profile. He pursued further and emailed asking to please please let him leave. They said sure, but first you have to send us an arts & crafts project, like so:

    Create a hand written sign that says and your friend ID. Your friend ID is the number between ID= and &mytoken in your profile’s URL.

    Get an image, or digital picture of yourself with this hand written sign.

    This is image is a salute. Next, reply to this e-mail with the salute as an e-mail attachment, or as an e-mail link to where it is uploaded.

Which seems really bizarre, unnecessary, and bad customer service, almost like Tom’s fixation with Asian schoolgirls.

UPDATE: The complaint letter radnauseum wrote Tom and Myspace customer service, after the jump…

    “Dear Tom or Rupert or whoever:

    Are you insane? I’m supposed to do arts and crafts, take a picture, upload it to a website, email you the picture and go through a lengthy URL to find my acct. number just to cancel my account?

    Why can’t I just go through the usual “click to confirm” program that most normal websites have. This is just one more reason why myspace sucks.

    I really do think you are insane. Imagine if suggested this for closing an account with them? Imagine any reputable website asking their users to take a picture of themselves to cancel an account? Even better! Imagine trying to return a book at Barnes and Noble and getting your picture taken with the book and piece of paper where you have hand written why you don’t want the book? The possibilities are endless. I just don’t have the time or patience to go through them all right now. Please be sure though that I will try to make this insane system you have as public as possible.

    You are insane.
