I need my access to the Ubuntu forums restored

I can log into the SSO fine, but am blocked after the handoff to the forums.

I did forget to mention I tried a yahoo account I have with the same
format, same results. I am told there is some kind of pattern matching
on the canonical side that is tripping up on the zeroes in my account
name.

I think yahoo requires a cell phone for new accounts, too, these days,
but am unsure. I will look into this other place.
I still think that the people on the other end should fix this,
though, because this email should be fine and never generated any spam
for anyone.

I had other email accounts before - not for this - which I can no
longer access. I think trying to have too many going led to that. I
used to have email clients configured to connect to them all, which
has the side effect of keeping your password somewhere, but I lost the
hard drive those were on.

Anyway, thank you for the heads up - I will look into that site you
mentioned.  Hopefully I can get info on how t o contact the right
people to fix the forums on their end, though.
