It was my name first and I've had it for almost 10 years. It was stolen on MySpace and now another site tells me it's taken, because I lost connect with the site during registration. If a name is mine, I think it should mine and they should let me have it. Yahoo closed my account and wouldn't let me have my old name, even though I'm the same person.
