Why is my username currently inactive?

LIMPET235: Thanks for your help but apparently I forgot what the password associated with the account was. I,therefore, requested a new password which was sent to my e-mail address. Imagine my surprise when I input the new password only to get the infamous response:
You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below.
Don't understand how this could happen in a matter of moments from getting the new password. Is it possible for you to e-mail to me the original password that was associated with the account? if not, could you please e-mail a new password to me? Sorry the situation appears to have gone wrong somewhere along the way.

I've never used this forum before and when I recently attempted to to, it said my username is currently inactive. How can I fix this?

Well if you did create an account here (forums.mozillazine.org) a activation email should have been sent to the email address you used to create account with.

There is no forums.mozillazine.org account with username of ale25 and if there was you would not have been able to use it as a Guest name.
