Not all web sites make it easy for users to delete their accounts, and some might actually make it so difficult that it's nearly impossible to do without help. That's where AccountKiller comes into play, because it not only gives clear and simple instructions for deleting accounts at all the most popular sites, but it also uses a definitive color-coding system to rate each one's "ease of service."

The colors used to rate sites are white, grey, and black.
White - Easy to delete
Grey - Not too easy but not too hard
Black - You're going to struggle to delete

AccountKiller currently tracks and rates over 150 sites, including major destinations such as Facebook (grey), Gmail (white), iTunes (black), and Skype (black). Some of the ratings are quite surprising, and some aren't, but clicking through to a site's information page gives a detailed description of the process for deleting an account there.
