Accounts everywhere!

I've been thinking about all the Internet sites that I've created an account on for one reason or another. It has to be in the hundreds. Of those sites I wonder how many of them would let me delete my account completely. Very few I bet. Probably the most universal method of deleting my account--at a site I no longer want to have a relationship with and does not offer a "delete me" mechanism--is to poison the account with bogus information. I could change all the information about me to false information and, if allowed, change my e-mail address to something bogus as well. I guess I'd have to read the terms of use policies but isn't this my account? Shouldn't I be allowed to delete it?
