You can ask support, whether they do or not is questionable.

This is an oft asked question though. Can I ask what is the problem with simply removing account details from your PC and just ignoring it?

Just remove Steam from your PC and then it is gone

Not sure if you can request them to delete your account as I am sure the response would just be "just don't use it" <shrug>.

STOP RIGHT THERE!

Do not message support, if you have already sent a ticket, please go close it. there is no need to clog an already overburdedned support queue with things easily found in the support FAQ.

Steam support will not and cannot disable accounts on request. Uninstall steam, forget about it & move on.

I am guessing SW has a ticket open and he is sick of people making tickets about nothing and slowing the whole process down

That would be a question for support. But why do something that is not reversable? Simply do not login/use your account. Then maybe in the future you will return to the account.
