Digg.com Complaint - Can not delete online profiles or cancel service

Review by justme7 on 2008-02-16
I posted a comment on Digg.com to test their service. They posted my name age and gender to be picked up by search engines and accessible to all on the internet.

There is no option on digg to remove or delete your profile. I have contacted digg.com several times over a period of almost a month.

THey did respond initially, becuase I had changed my email address and needed me to verify I had an alternate address and that I am in fact me.

I verified that information. I have been contacting them for 3 weeks. I have been contacting them from both my old and new address.

I have received absolutely zero responses.

My profile is still active. My name and age and gender are still posted for the entire world to see. I have absolutely no way to delete my profile and no hope at this point of getting any further with digg.com. They do not have a phone number to be reached at and will not acknowledge an email.

Thanks for warning your loyal readers to not post personal information on unprotected websites that can be picked up by search engines.

I echo MRM's answer and in addition would like to add for others not to use your actual email address in responding to any website. Many have learned that one the hard way. Open front door, Spam come on in and make yourself comfortable. Good review.
