This question already has an answer here:

I am really really sorry to post this on main, but apparently there's a minimum rep necessary to post on meta --- and there's no easily available info on how to contact the moderators.

I have hit the "delete" button a gazillion times, but this account (created very recently) will not go away, and its existence seems to prevent me from logging into my usual account. When I attempt to log into that account, I get logged into this one instead.

The help pages tell me to hit the delete button. That doesn't work.

I have tried the "recover account" link sent me by email, etc, but no matter what I do, I end up logged into this account instead of my usual. I have tried disabling cookies, but then I can't log in at all. As soon as I allow the cookies again, I'm suddenly automatically logged back into this account. Since the original cookies were erased, I can't figure out what's making stackexchange think it knows who I am, but it's extremely persistent.

Please help!

    $\begingroup$ Only one moderator? Doesn't seem to be a good idea ;) $\endgroup$ – Baby Dragon Jul 17 '13 at 22:59

You could also have flagged a post by this user or your real one as

it needs ♦ moderator attention
-> other

and asked a moderator to delete your account. However, it is often better to merge your accounts - the latter is useful if you accidentally created a new account but want posts made by that migrated to your "real" one.

I think this has something to do with your browser, namely, Chrome. So I guess what you encounter is that you are trying to log-in one of your accounts via, say, Google, but Chrome logged you in automatically without allowing you to choose.

To my experience, any browser, except for Chrome, will resolve this issue.

it's easy to solve, just erase your cookies, not only disable them ;)
