If you do not have access to your old email account, please reply to this email with a salute and the email address to which you want it changed.
Here is how to create a salute: 1. Create a handwritten sign that says MySpace.com and your friend ID. Your friend ID is the number between ID= and &mytoken in your profile's URL/web address. 2. Take a picture of yourself with this hand written sign and reply to this email with the salute as an email attachment, or as an e-mail link to where it is uploaded.

MySpace Aggravation - Grrrr!
First of all, I'd like to apologize for my very long blog hiatus. I've been real busy with my book and I just haven't had the time to post. I hope you'll forgive me. And thanks to everyone who sent an email, asking if I was alright. It's nice to know you have friends out here in cyber space, even if you've never met face to face. Thanks so much for you concern. I really do appreciate it. :) Now, on to my rant... For those of you who have a MySpace account, have you ever tried to change your email address? If you haven't, you'd better listen up. Last month I switched IP's. As I'm sure most of you do, when I switched my service, I also switched my email address. Unless you use a Yahoo or Google email address, where you don't have to bother to update your account every time you switch your service (which I've learned to do), that's all good and fine... until you need to switch your MySpace email address. In order to switch your MySpace email address, MS support is required to send an email to your OLD addy. After you receive the email, you hit reply and send the whole email back, and that's how your change is confirmed. But I didn't know this. I switched my email address BEFORE I changed my MS account, therefore I didn't have access to my old email address, so I was unable to update my account. Now what? I figured there had to be some kind of back-up plan for people like me who didn't know this, so I checked the faq's where there they tell you to fill out the email form with the promise they'll get back to you; I filled out the form and a couple of minutes later (I will say I received a fast reply) I received this response:
Is it just me, or is this the craziest thing you've ever heard of? At first I thought they were kidding. I honestly did. I scrolled down and quickly scanned the email, looking for the part that said it was a joke. LOL I can just see myself holding that sign up and snapping a picture. I've come to the conclusion that this is some kind of punishment for those of us who don't change their MySpace email BEFORE they get rid of their old address. Go figure. Well, I'm off to make my sign and use the dh's camera phone. Wish me luck...
