Getting Emails Twice

Since the update last night I am getting emails to my handle TRAD and to "TRAD 1". Is anyone else experiencing the same thing? The body starts "Hello TRAD" and "Hello TRAD 1"

On the plus side, the TRAD 1 account had 6.6K rep for awhile after the update.

@Trad - I have suspended the @Trad1 account. Let me know if that does/doesnt fix your problem.

@Trad - @Fatherjack beat me to it, so I've also scrambled the email address, just to be helpful (and also to be sure).

Remember the day when we all thought that the site is down for about an hour? At that time, some of us (yourself included) were kinda forced to create new accounts. For example, if you go to users page and sort by name then you can find you (TRAD) and another you (TRAD 1) on page 124. Since both accounts point to the same email address, you get 2 emails instead of one. I believe that the merge with Oracle questions caused some of these second accounts to become re-enabled. It will probably take to contact Chris Massey to get this issue resolved.

P.S. I did a spotcheck on few names and it appears that other accounts which were created on that day (Fatherjack 1, Kev Riley 1, Oleg 1) are not listed. This explains why I don't get double emails.

@Oleg, congrats on the 10k. I hit it myself yesterday.

@Oleg - 10k!!! Thanks for your impressive contribution to this forum.

Thank you guys. Actually, the congratulations are in order for 3 users because @TRAD hit 10K yesterday, and @Håkan Winther - about 10 minutes ago.
