    This is how I did it, and it worked.
    1) delete all content
    2) replace log-in email address by one you’ve just created on hotmail or others
    3) Change your name to whatever you want
    4) Go thru steps described in the article to delete your account
    It is only after I changed my email address and name that I stopped getting emails from FB saying that my account “had been reactivated”.
