Don't you have a lot better things to do? I think there system
is suffering some serious bugs AND they have a policy of
deleting non-premium accounts if they aren't used at least once
every so often (forget if it is 3 weeks or a month but in that
range). However, after many tries I wasn't able to set up a new
account except from a PC. So something is technically wrong.
They might be under attack for what you or I know. So treating
them as villians or even incompetents doesn't seem terribly
