Can anyone tell me how to get rid of dreamstime account quickly
because they won't delete my account for 6 months and I can not do it myself.

I tried spamming in blog but they just deleted my threads.

You agreed to leave your images there for 6 months when you uploaded. As mentioned above, the only way to get them down faster is to do something that conflicts with their terms, and get yourself thrown out.

If you have some kind of emergency that is valid you can contact them and ask for help. Otherwise, you agreed to their terms when you joined so you will be treated just like everyone else there. If you do something that is not legal just to expedite things, the evidence will follow you to other sites.

There must be thousands of threads in this site where contributors are fuming about agencies acting unethically. I will find it very contradictory not to see anyone pointing out to you that this is as unethical as those site's actions.

Keep to your agreement you willingly signed up for and wait your time out as you agreed to.  If you have a valid reason to exit quickly, take it up with them.

 I emailed them in the beginning if they would delete my port, they wouldnt and held me to the agreement. I had to wait an antagonizing 6 months to get out. I was deactivating images as soon as the quota would let me. At some point I identically reactivated an image and had to wait another 6 months. But I emailed them and begged them to set me free, I begged not be held hostage over one image. And they deleted my portfolio straight away and kept the 11 dollar they owned me. So I am a free man, but you have to stick to the 6 months. What you can do is delete all keywords and replace them with one word 7 times the same word that noone will look for, and change all descriptions to meaningless stuff. For example you can change the description to This image is not for sale.

One day you may be happy that you had such a long time to change your mind if you want to leave DT because you want to become exclusive elsewhere. :-)
Locking in people for 6 months is stupid idea - on the other hand I don't find "spamming in blog" to be wiser. Agreements are to be kept no matter how stupid they are (by both sides - which unfortunately usually doesn't happen in microstock business).

At least one person grasping that you can not persecute the agencies for the same thing you happily accommodate in the case of a contributor. Then I do not have much sympathy if the same people cries about agencies screwing them. So minus or ignore this as well.

Is there any valid reason for deleting this account. Though my experience with DT is bit not-so-good. I got maximum rejections and believe me I was thinking to quit Microstock market for ever, but before doing that, I tried FT, DP, 123rf. My luck worked there. DT still does not like most of my images. But I am not complaining. It takes time for an agency to accept newbie.

When I first started at Dreamstime and iStock in 2007, I was a terrible contributor. Lots of rejections. The stuff that made it through seemed to sell decently, and I spent a lot of time muttering under my breath about reviewers.

During that time more than one reviewer at DT helped me out with very useful advice on how to make my images more marketable. A first and a last in microstock. Ultimately it was up to me to improve as a contributor, and I did. I'm no Lisa FX, but I'm pleased that today I have an acceptance ratio in excess of 90%, and a DL to upload ratio which exceeds 8. I consider DT my favorite agency to work with. I make more at SS and IS, but I have more faith in DT to do right by me than any of the other Big 4.

I totally understand people's frustration with the Similars Policy. But what I don't get is why contributors sign the 6th month agreement, get a bunch of image rejections, and then take to the message boards to complain about the agreement they signed. What's the hurry? Just wait out the 6 months and leave. What's the worst that could happen? You might get a sale while you are waiting.
