    I would love to delete mine but it is the only way I can find out what my son at Uni is doing - I'm not his 'friend' but I am his girfriend's so I see all the gossip.

    Yup, When you remove your account it just de-activates it.. If you login using your email and password at anytime it will recover your account.

    I dont believe it actually get's removed permanently

    Nor did I, got dragged on it by family, don't think I was on it even for a year - pi55ed bored with it in the end. Found a few old friends on there but I think the only proper friend I have made within the last few years has been a member on Edugeek so I could not really see the point of it.
    I do wonder though if my actions have anything to do with the large amounts of alcohol I have consumed today.

    Lucky you. I would like to consume alcohol [especially in large amounts] but I am feeling out of sorts with, among other things, an 'unproductive cough'

    Yuk.

    Yup. I did the same thing about 8 months ago now. Since then I've spent less time online, become a lot less nosey and have also discovered who my real friends are - the ones who phone me, email me, come round to see me.

    I'm on Facebook - but locked down tight due to my disowned wits of a family stalking us (and they disowned us! !)
