So if that don’t beat all.
Just got this from Orkut. After (let’s see) Oh, about three weeks since I sent it.
We sincerely apologize for our delay in responding to your request to have your account reactivated. We hope you’ll be willing to rejoin the orkut.com community and give us another chance.
At the time your account was suspended, your profile name was listed as “Laser-Guided Elvis” which violated the Community Standards posted at http://help.orkut.com/bin/answer.py?answer=148&topic=-1. In general, users are sent a warning first, asking them to correct their profile name, and we’re sorry that this step wasn’t taken first.
Your account has been unsuspended; however, your profile name will have to abide by our Community Standards if you wish to continue participating.
Again, we apologize that a warning message was not issued before your account was suspended, and we’re working hard to ensure that this does not happen in the future.
So now, there’s two of me. At least.
Now. After I’ve completely re-created my Orkut identity, re-built my friend list. Nice timing, guys, that’s real attention to detail there, that is.
At least I have my testimonials back. Seems they didn’t show up on other users profiles, but the text showed in my testimonials list, so I was able to screen-capture them and save them. So if there’s any goodness I can get it back.
And my old postings are back in my name.
There are some confused users though. Suddenly they have two of me. Some may call this a blessing, some a curse.
At least they finally admitted the fuck-up, if a day late and a few simoleons short. Wonder how long til they realize there are two of me?
