I'm hoping that includes my old account that I renamed to "Deleted User" before "deleting" it.

Don't get your hopes up. Scummy "social media" companies justify their existence on numbers of users, and fraudulent login attempts on your account probably qualify you as a "live user".

I've got two Linkedin accounts - the one under my real name solely for keeping in touch with business colleagues not close enough to be on my private email list, and the made up name so that when looking up other people ahead of meetings, my name doesn't show as "Jonathan J. Scumbag has recently reviewed your profile". Ever since Microsoft bought Linkedin, I've been in two minds whether to delete both accounts.
