Somebody signed me up for the WildBlue forum

I just received my "Welcome" email from the WildBlue forum.
Whoever did this did it right or I wouldn't have gotten the email.
I went to the site and not having a log-in, I requested my log-in and to change my password.  It all works now.

My question is... who has my information that could have signed me up for the WildBlue board and if it is someone at exede, why would you do that?  The WildBlue board is a geek board where people can send PM's to each other.  I've stayed out of it due to my moral compass telling me to limit what I expose about exede to only justifiable information to help people get  what they pay for (of course those post always get removed). I'll never post information to "hack" exede, but I will post their double-standards, especially from their own sites.

It just seems strange for me to be signed up for a place where I can privately inform people about various workarounds that will solve their problems with exede.

I still have no intention of posting there or sending PM's around.  I don't hate exede, I hate the double-talk we get about why things are the way they are, so I won't be playing in the WildBlue sandbox... why be tempted all the time? but thanks for thinking of me.

I call BS and Drama,
There is no way that an ISP is going to post a users personal info, even yours Craig.
Someone has it "in for you" and that someone goes well beyond your ISP.,

Yep, if that's really his email address, he opened up an entirely new can of worms.

I'm taking this with a HUGE grain of salt.

That email address is a post-spam/suspect filter "catch-all" box that holds emails from several other addresses.  I don't use the exede-provided email system.  I pay for features exede does not provide and that address is not directly "send-able"  so I don't care if it shows. Some comments make me think there are nothing but bottom-feeders here.

We'll just add that to your other insults.  

BTW, I'm sure we'd all be happy to hear how it is that we PM each other on here when this site doesn't have that capability.  I'm all ears.

Like the saying says...  "If the shoe fits...

You just don't pay attention to details do you??  Who said THIS  forum allows PM's ?

Hi Craig, I’m sorry, this is very bizarre, I could not tell you how this happen, but I can assure you that I nor any of my Exede associates have signed you up for WildBlue World. I have escalated this issue to our back-end moderators (Alex) to see if I can get more answers.

Hi Craig, no idea how that happened but I can delete that account on there if you'd like.
