Is there a law to back me up in getting my posts deleted from a website that I no longer support or want to be associated with? I never agreed to anything that would give up my ownership of my posts.

Probably not under US law.  The Berne convention requires that participants implement moral rights which might allow you the right to do what you wish, but the US does not implement moral rights in any meaningful way.  Arguably our laws are not in compliance.

A C+D letter will probably do the trick. But that is not cheap.

Has anything progressed in our system - this is a relatively old question.  A particular forum we have participated with in the past has locked our user name and we are unable to remove our pictures.  Will a C&D letter force the admins of the forum to at least release our pictures?
