With members flaming out in rapid succession recently (and I know that people do this all the time, but we seem to have a cluster right now), how difficult would it be for The Button to require email verification, say 24 hours after it is hit, before an account is actually closed?

In other words, once the button is hit, an email goes out the next day, and you enter a code or your user name or "please unsubscribe me" to actually close the account.
That way, if after the cooling-off period someone decides he/she was a little rash in quitting Mefi, there's less embarrassment all around because they simply don't verify and come back the next day. Also, as pushing the button itself wouldn't really be final, the flameouts we did have would at least be well-thought-out and more entertaining, as folks would have 24 hours to compose them.
