Advertisements You had a banner showing my e-mail address and saying attempts to reach me via e-mail had failed and that I needed to update my e-mail address. The e-mail address was fine as was. I changed to an alternate e-mail address (non gmail) and confirmed that address, but I check that address much less frequently and would prefer to continue to use the gmail address which had worked fine up through most of the day, including getting messages from threads that I had been watching. Because the e-mail had not been working I apparently was locked out to the point that even posting here to report the issue was blocked. Not a great experience for a user.
