Attempted to prune user database!!!

In an effort to delete fake users (we had >60,000 users registered at one point) I deleted many that were obvious by searching for bad emails that were registered. That brought it down to 16,000. I then went one by one trying to delete the ones that were also fake emails, but harder to discern--they were mostly gmail accounts. I have already noticed however that I may have deleted real users....I am sorry for that-the posts are still there. If you are one of these, I can give you back your username--I will have to assign a new temporary password though until you log in again, then change it. I will need your username and your email and your name that would be visible on your profile. those are required to register you. after logging in you can change any of that. please email me directly to get your username back and include the email you want listed, username and real name you want on your profile. alternatively you should be able to register with the same username if you don't want to go through me.

I am sorry for the hassle, but we needed to get the mailing list back to reality :oops:
