ratcreature: WTF!? (WTF!?)
So I got a mail from Flickr informing me that they have been acquired by "SmugMug", whatever that is, and that if I don't want my account data transferred I ought to delete the account by May 25.

Now, I don't remember to ever having signed up for Flickr, but I used to have a Yahoo Account, because of the YahooGroups merger back in the day, and at some point Yahoo acquired Flickr, so who knows what I got auto signed up for. So I tried to login with the e-mail that they sent the notification about my supposed account to, only then the login tells me that they don't know that email address.

So obviously I can't try to login or do a password recovery to see that Flickr account they informed me I have. I actually still have the password for my old YahooID written down, but apparently they don't ask for YahooIDs anymore. I mean, they can't have it both ways, mailing me and then claim they don't know that email.

ETA: Apparently they prompted for an email, but in reality wanted my YahooID in that field. So now I could delete the Flickr account that I never signed up for in the first place.
