I don't see any obvious option to delete a user account and corresponding PSN data from my PS3. How can I do this?

Log in as the user whom you want to delete. Select the icon of the user, press the Δ [triangle] button, and then select [Delete] from the options menu"

What if I can't log on as that user? Is that possible? – McKay Mar 16 '13 at 17:06
No, just the current user can be deleted. – astdium Mar 16 '13 at 22:55
So that means, if someone creates an account on my PS3, and sets a password, then I can't get it removed ever? – McKay Mar 17 '13 at 3:25
@McKay well, you can delete the user, but if you don't know the PSN password you can't deactivate the account of your system, but the user can certainly be deleted. – astdium Mar 18 '13 at 20:04
