You could always send instructables a DMCA takedown notice saying someone else posted your content without permission

I presume you've tried withdrawing it from the contest?

That's the problem, it's not entered in any contest. It's never been entered in any contest.

Have you tried publishing it, then deleting it? (Even if this is mindless chatter between us, at least we're keeping the thread bumped until someone more knowledgeable sees it)

I think it is not possible to do so. If you did enter it in a contest, its impossible. There was an ible I tried to delete that was entered into the book contest, but it wouldnt let me. I ended up typing that the ible was removed by the author, then flagged it as spam. It has been a few months, and it still hasnt been deleted.
