Deleting accounts opens one's eyes at how bad sometimes the situation is.
Services, who don't serve their content/services to Europeans, don't bother about GDPR, which makes removal of accounts in Russia way harder.
Even those, who are EU-based, still make it hard. All this hunting for KB articles or support emails is no fun. "We don't have an email, use online chat", yea yea, f- you.
Many services don't support account deletion — only account "closure". An accidental login reactivates it.
A portal with some MMORPGs, one of which I used to play: "We need to know it's you. Tell us every email, phone number, and social account that were ever connected to your account, list us all of your characters with nicknames, races, classes and levels, tell us all games you've played, tell us the city and date of the registration, tell us when and what you've played last time."
I barely remember any of these things, of course 🤦🏻♂️
