Made a little blog post so I can remember this day: https://angristan.xyz/i-deleted-my-facebook-account/
@niconiconi @angristan A similar thing happened to me. I deleted my main account, but I had kept an alt account for contacting someone I know. I tried logging in one day and they made me verify my account in the stupidest way.
They wanted to send one of my friends a text message with a code. That friend would then have to tell me the code. Only problem is that none of my FB friends I know in real life. FB is the only way I can contact them. Stupidest verification method I've ever heard of.
