I have requested for my account to be deleted about 5 times now (not an exaggeration) through the deletion request form http://stackoverflow.com/help/user-deletion with the corresponding "please delete me" on my user description.
It has been almost a month and I haven't received any confirmation or email response. I've submitted a new request each week and I just sent one again yesterday.
There should at least be an automated response email upon form submission that the request is pending approval and a follow-up email of whether it was accepted or denied.
As of now, it seems as though you can delete an account at any given moment, which is how it should be. However if there are any reasons an account can not be deleted, maybe it would be best to put them on the deletion request form page.
It's pretty standard on just about every website, I don't see why something so basic is not incorporated here. As to my problem, can an admin shed some light as to why my account hasn't been deleted?
