Past August, we ran a story about the dangers of abandoned email and chat accounts. Since then, we've been getting a steady trickle of requests from readers for advice on how to get a provider to delete an unused profile or address completely.
Today's question on the topic came from reader Mike, who tries to have his old and unused ICQ.com account properly closed and deleted. Not so easy, it turns out: The "support forum" on ICQ is full of users who post "please close my account" requests, but don't seem to be getting an answer or action. If you know an approach that works for ICQ, please comment below, or let us know via our contact page.
