Further to my query re: failed attempt to change email address on existing account

Neo
Thanks for your reply to my original post, entitled "Problem changing the email address associated with my unix.com account".
I am unable to reply to you in that thread, as I am unable to log-on to unix.com!
From what you said about purging dormant accounts, it is likely that my account belongs in that category.
I will create a new account, as you have suggested.
If it is feasible, could I ask you to delete my exiting account, please?
My username is 'irb'.
Thank you.
