It is done.
That's not a formatting error, by the way. That's how the text looked when Facebook sent it to me. Or, I guess, it is a formatting error, because Facebook doesn't bother to check the quality of the formatting on their account deletion email. Huh.
With all the anxiety about this I've been feeling in the past couple weeks, I'm surprised that I didn't have any sudden, dramatic second thoughts when I logged on to actually do it.
Also -- downloading a backup of your account takes like two hours. Maybe it has to, but I sort of suspect they just make it take forever on purpose.
