*I* am the Paranoid Android!!!
I have been reading through several LJ community journals ... and I came to realise that you can rename your journal if the account you want has been deleted and purged.

I have been waiting for this for YEARS!

When I first joined LJ I wanted the account name paranoidandroid. I have been the Paranoid Android since about 95 ... maybe earlier. I was just beaten to the name by some nutter Radiohead fan which makes it all the more painful

When the Radiohead fan finally deleted his journal, and there was rumour of recycling user names - I was ecstatic. Finally I could be myself again. Unfortunately it never happened (or so I thought) and even when his account was purged I saw no way to gain the user name for my own purposes.

But after shelling out $15 I have the name I wanted.

Current Mood: ecstatic ecstatic
Current Music: deborah harry - I Can See Clearly Now (D-Ream Mix)

awe, congrats then! when I first saw this I was about to go into my, "dammit, people cannot just go changing online names, it messes with my brain stations and disrupts my dilusions that this is reality! curse them! curse them all!" rampages, but now I'm happy for you.

Someone has spacefem on yahoo.com, it's always really irked me. I had to be space_fem. bugger.

Like yourself, I have had the same online name for everything for 99% of the time I've been online. When I got an LJ account I found that my name had already been taken. Even worse, it had been taken by a Radiohead fan!

Radioheads release of "Paranoid Android" has caused me no end of troubles, to the point of me having to register my own domain so I can get an email address for my online persona.
