Meetup – You can check out any time you like

I received an announcement from Meetup, a service I have never really used. It included the following:

To unsubscribe from ALL your Meetup Groups and the
service as a whole, click here:

I decided to do that – close the account. First thing that link takes me to is a login page. Entering email and password. A bit weird, given that I just told them by clicking that I want OUT, but anyway. The next page, however, wants all sorts of other information, thanks to an updated TOS (“terms of service”)
My name.
A new user ID
My country and zip
My email preferences
My agreement to the new TOS

Once I completed all THAT, then I could close down my whole account. Weird.
