Default Deleting Photobucket

I already tried getting ahold of Photobucket over the last couple weeks and no response. So, maybe someone here knows whats going on. I want to delete my Photobucket account. Google says to click on the profile icon once signed in, then click the "Account" tab and scroll to the bottom and click "Delete Account", select a reason and tell them why (required). I did that. Supposedly there is a slider or a box to show that you are human. Well, nothing shows up. I changed my computer settings to "allow all" and restarted IE. Still no slider, and no box. Its like they dont want you deleting your account.

Who knows how to delete a Photobucket account? I could simply not use it, but i want my account GONE.

Ok, finally! Like taking the car to a mechanic and it never acts up. Drive it home and it starts acting up. Thats what happened here, apparently. For anyone else wanting to delete thier Photobucket account, if they havent already, it may take a couple tries for the site to wake up and realize whats going on. Still a PITA. Then you have to play "i am not a robot" a couple times for confirmation. A load screen pops up and then disappears. Done. If you see anything that mentions restoring your account, it went thru.

BTW, before doing this, i couldnt even open any of my photos in the library. I could see the thumbnails just fine and click to open. Ads kept popping up and the little loading circle you get for the photos kept freezing. The website stopped responding a couple times and had to close IE. Actually, i had to restart my computer once because the X in the upper right of windows wasnt working. Also, half my photos multiplied. As in a couple were duplicated...some 8 times times! I didnt do that.

I ran a couple malware/adaware scans and the like and found 128 tracking cookies. Deleted those and rescanned. Found 23 more. I know they came from Photobucket as i never get them anywhere else. Thanks, Photobucket. And good riddance.

Heres your $400 lol >
