It should be easy to cancel online accounts

It bugs me when I’m unable to cancel accounts I have for various online services. I guess that I’ve possibly become annoyed by it because lots of the more recent (cool) offerings make it very easy to cancel.

I was initially aiming this rant at yahoo as I’ve had a user there for about seven years (hmm, that seems too long but I’m pretty certain it’s correct) and didn’t think I could cancel it. It would actually appear that I can cancel it but they still make it relatively difficult to do (go to help, click on article, follow link and then cancel).

Actually, I just changed the title of the post from I should be able to close online accounts to it’s present form due to the yahoo finding (although I’m pretty certain there are lots of other services that don’t allow for cancelling).
