That was a dirty trick. I am permanently locked out of my original account that I have had for several years. I never wanted or needed an Ubuntu One account. I already had another cloud resource and don't appreciate Ubuntu trying to force me to use theirs. I didn't like that about Microsoft and for Ubuntu to pull this crap via Ubuntu Forums is just a slap in the face. I am not at all happy with Ubuntu or Ubuntu Forums and think that was a REALLY STUPID thing to do.
Regardless of how incredibily put off I am, I still want my original account back. How can I get that back? Creating an Ubuntu One account with the same email address, user name, and password didn't work. In fact I was assigned a username I would have never chosen instead of the one I put in the username field when I signed up. There was no indication given that my username would be automatically assigned.
How many long-term Ubuntu users have been alienated by their trusted support resource?
This really sucks and seriously needs to be rethought... and hopefully, quickly undone.
