I Deleted My Facebook Account Last Night

Facebook sent me this when I deleted the account:

14 days?! WTF? Also if I log back in during that period they assume I don’t want the account deleted and cancel it. So basically they are making it really easy for people to undelete the account – but there should be an immediate deletion option.
