Email I just sent to Amazon.
Dear Amazon: I can't believe you stoop as low as that and hide the ability to close my account so thoroughly that I now have to engage in a multi-message email discussion with you to convince you to do so. Please CLOSE my account!
If you want to close your Amazon account, good luck, you will be playing hide and seek with them. Kind of lame.
Ok, I sent them that email, and it seems they still won't let me go! Lame^2. Here's what their response email says:
