How to delete a category altogether - not just on a profile?

+6 votes
I was in the cemetery categories for my home state and saw "Hodge Parish."

There's not a Hodge "Parish."  So doesn't this page need to go before someone who is interred in or near the town of Hodge, Louisiana, uses this category by mistake?

If you are certain this is an invalid name (and all parishes in Louisiana have already been set up, so it's obviously an invalid category), then you simply add {{Delete Category}} at the top of the category edit box and save. EditBot will do the rest.

I looked at the category and googled the city.  It has no profiles within it and I agree with Kathryn that this is an incorrect category. So I went ahead and placed the delete category within the profile for edit bot to handle.
I thought of doing that, but I thought I'd leave it to Kathryn as a learning experience.  

Thanks, Gurney, for taking care of it.
I appreciate all help!  :)
