Can't delete account?!!

  1. I want to delete my entire account here on WordPress and start over, but I can't figure out how. HELP.

    The blog I need help with is busysymphony.wordpress.com.

  2. Username accounts are not deleted http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    If you want to remove personal information, lock up an account and free up an email address read what follows.

    1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile and remove all data except the account name and an email address. Create a throwaway email address and change the account email to that throwaway address. This only leaves the username behind.

    2. To unsubscribe from email sent to you from WordPress.com, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from WordPress.com”:
    http://wordpress.com/#!/following/subsettings/

    3. To ensure the account is locked up tightly, visit this site, generate a password of 15-20 characters, and change the account password to it:

  3. You can delete a blog but I suggest that you simply make the blog "private" because you may want to use it again one day in the future and deleted blog URLs here are not recycled.
