Loging in to this forum

I have had  no end of hastle trying to log in to this forum with my user name dratdestroyer.
However if I use the email address postmaster@[deleted for privacy reasons].plus.com it will work on the second attempt using the same password both times.
Why is that?

jim:post The login screen for this forum doesn't require an email address but the email address will work which is useful if you forget your username
Checking your account - your username and the display name aren't the same and you need to login with the username (note the two d's) mod:end

I saw that. The 2 d's. Strange that. Must have had a bad typing day when signing up.
So how do I go about removing one of the d's or shall I just sign in as postmaster@..... ?

Subject to correction by the more knowledgeable I don't think the username is changeable.
Why not just sign in with the 2 d's. This won't affect your display name

Its not easily changeable, and there is no real reason for it to be changeable really - as you say, the display name can be changed as often as one chooses to.
