Deactivate account

Um… Maybe just abandon and un-link all your payment methods. Maybe open a support ticket.

Whilst doing it, though, maybe you could provide them some detail with what they’ve done wrongly for you to leave, so they can make it better for not just you, but all of us.

Have fun, though.
