I’ve reset the password on the account to prevent him from using it, but I can’t log into the account to see what profile information he specified or what he did on the site, because the site provides no way to recover a lost username. I’ve contacted email@example.com and asked them to provide me with the username as well as information from their logs about who created this account.
They’re a bit more likely to be willing to help then Skype, given that (a) they’re a collaborative, open-source organization and (b) I have an ongoing relationship with Mozilla, having submitted several core and Thunderbird patches and been nominated as a “Friend of the Tree”.
I’ve asked them at the very least, if they’re unwilling or unable to provide me with the username, to delete the account, since I don’t want accounts created by other people using my email address on sites all over the internet.
