This is the second time this has happened to me... my account is completely gone. It says "no account is registered under this username." Even my username is all of a sudden available to make a new account. It's completely gone. Yet I still have the confirmation emails from when I made my account... twice. Why does this keep happening and how can I prevent this?!? Super annoying and frustrating!

Hi Shannon, it's because I'm battling a spammer who keeps creating users. Your account activity resembles a spammer (no read activity, perhaps more shares than reads, etc). 

What's your username? I can check the next time the spam detector runs.

It's smariesmith0. I'll have to create it again though. I am having trouble using newsblur in general. I do read articles but I'm not sure how to mark them read or add news articles to my main feed
