The electrons were barely dry on my last post when I received an email from TRUSTe about the problems I'd had getting Facebook to close my account; the interesting bit is below:
Thank you for submitting your privacy complaint through the TRUSTe Watchdog Dispute Resolution program. The TRUSTe Compliance Team has reviewed the details of your complaint and we have determined that it is a valid privacy complaint. We have contacted www.facebook.com on your behalf and have outlined the steps necessary for proper resolution.
So my advice to you if you are having problems getting Facebook to close your account is to submit a complaint to TRUSTe.
