You'll need a way of proving your identity, you cant expect Sumo to just change the password of the account and tell you it.

However it is pretty unlikely that anyone would want to steal some guys account on QBN...

Speking of lost passwords, KiZ asked me to retreive his password for him, he lost it after that last post.
So if you could just PM it to me... :P  :D

Since your new account has the same AIM nick listed as what is most likely your old account had, catch me on AIM (RuneJM) and Ill change your password. Sumo seems to be busy elsewhere.

I did that too, and saw that they matched, but that doesnt necessarily mean that its the same user; he could have been using public machines, or be with an isp with a small ip pool so they cycled alot.

Of course, I just thought of it as it has been brought up before, when debating the possibillity of users having multiple accounts for illegitimate reasons.

No, rather spamming, excessive whining, reregistering after ban etc.

I haven't anything worth stealing and I release it under GPL-like
conditions anyway.
