How to delete skype account?

I know this seems like it would be a simple thing, but after a couple of hours trying to figure out how to do it, I have come to the conclusion that it is not actually simple. Could someone please enlighten me as to exactly what I need to do to delete a skype account?

"If you no longer want to use your Skype account, you first need to remove all your personal information from your profile. This will ensure that other people cannot search for you in Skype by using personal information such as your full name, email or phone number (although they’ll still be able to search for your Skype Name).

The personal details contained in your profile depend on information you provided when you created or updated your profile. It may include your name, gender, date of birth, phone number, email address, mood message and any profile pictures of yourself you’ve uploaded.

To delete the personal details from your profile:

Sign in to your Skype account.
Under Account Details, select Profile.
In the Personal information section, click Edit next to Change password.
The Edit option selected in the Personal information section.
Remove any personal details you provided. You can replace your details in the fields with random characters such as “qwerty” or “xxx” because empty fields cannot be saved.
Click Save."

Skype is kind of like those old roach motels - you can check in, but you never check out. Honestly, there is no way to delete a skype account. The best you can do is fill in the blanks on your profile with gibberish. You can’t even erase your info and leave it blank, it won’t allow that. You HAVE to put something in there and your account will still exist. I realize that it might sound like I am kidding, but I am dead serious.
