  • Deactivating: See Th4V7's reply.
  • Deleting it permanently: There's actually no way. If you are concerned about your email and your password, please change your email and password by anything really unique and nonsensical like turtlepancakes@cactusflowerachiever.hurz and asdgoho23habgas(/avln2k (and please change it a little bit more ;-) ) and deactivate your account afterwards. Then it's practically dead.
