I recently joined http://www.webring.com which was a mistake. It is just another crappy website that I'd like to delete my account on? Anyone know how?

They recently enraged me with this amusing paragraph at the bottom of an emai:

To manage receipt of email, or cancel this account, please visit your My Account area - http://www.webring.com/mbr - This is an account you created, so there is no "unsubscribe". This is a transactional email under CAN-SPAM guidelines, not commercial or unsolicited email.

Wow - that site really is bad.

Anyway from this FAQ article you need to do the following:

How do I delete my account?

To delete your WebRing account, you must first quit any WebRing Commuities (rings) in which you are a member. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Log into WebRing and view your My Account page.
  2. Scroll down and click the Memberships tab to open the list of your ring memberships.
  3. Click on your Site Title(s) to bring up the Edit Site Information page.
  4. Find and click the "Delete Site from Ring" link in the left column of that page.
  5. Repeat this process until you have deleted your site(s) from all the rings you belong to. (There is no way to do this for all rings at once. It must be done one ring at a time.)

If you manage any rings, you must dispose of them. You may transfer management to another member of the ring, or to some other WebRing member, or you may delete a ring that has no members.

Once all your memberships are deleted, you will find the "Delete This User ID" link in the left column of your My Account page. Once you click that link, you will end your membership in WebRing.

This sounds confusing and complicated. I have no idea what you are talking about. I signed up on for this Web Ring site to check out genealogy research. Now I don't know what to do with this. Am I supposed to something more? Is this site for business, which I don't have? Is there a monetary catch? What do I do with this? –  user16724 Jan 24 '12 at 16:45

@TerriSager I don't understand your comment. Are you asking what you should use WebRing for? If so, I have no idea. –  Barry Jan 24 '12 at 19:15
