Hi,
If you go to your "User Control Panel" link in the top right hand column, you can change your email addy in there.
That's all you need to do.

&, no. We don't delete Accounts...Just de-activate them.

I have this account, 'brinke.' I also have, somehow, 'brinkeguthrie.' I'd like to change my 'brinke' account to 'brinkeguthrie.'

You already have an account with the name you are asking for. Why not just use it? If it's a matter of the associated email address, see Limpet's suggestion.
