OOC re: Account disabled

Some people were asking for help regarding my account disabled posting. In my case someone hacked my account and changed my RL info. At least LL support told me that my details were wrong. It may also have been a database issue that time. I dont know.

I posted what I did in Darien's blog.

Here is a crossposting (the important thing is the telephone number):
