Follow-up Comment #1:

Hi Alan,

I have updated your email address and activated your account.  If you
need to reset the password please use the lost password reset links on
the login page.

We are very happy to help with these things!  Thank you for submitting
a ticket.  Just for purposes of communication I want to say that after
a timeout of 3 days any unconfirmed accounts are automatically
expired.  That would have allowed you to resubmit the attempt again
with a different email address.  But...  There would have been that
expiration delay to wait through.  And you would need to know the
inner workings of the expiration.  So submitting a ticket and getting
help is better. :-)

Your account is now active.  However please note that if you are not a
member of any group and do not have any tickets associated with your
account then it will be an "idle" account and subject to idle account
removal as an anti-abuse measure.  Spammers and other malicious agents
have automated mechanisms that create thousands of accounts forcing us
to now prune those.  Please see this page for details.

Note: Submitting a comment to this ticket would be sufficient to make
the account no longer idle.  Hint, hint.
