Epicurious.com won't delete my account

A few months back, I created an account on Epicurious.com to test out the Facebook Beacon advertising feature that was in the news. After playing with it a bit, I decided I really didn't want an Epicurious account, so I e-mailed their customer service department asking them to remove my account. No response. So, I contacted them again. No response. I e-mailed their parent company's customer service. No response again. It's now been several months, and I haven't so much as gotten a response, and the account is still active. I've since noticed in their privacy policy that they make no commitment to remove accounts upon request. Talk about terrible business practice. They may have my e-mail address, but they'll never be getting my business (or my ad views).
