I had one account through Google with email X and another account through myopenid.com. I happened to add the same email X to this myopenid.com account. My intention was to stop using the Google account in favor of the new myopenid.com account.
After some time asking and answering questions with my openid.com account I am astonished to find out that it is now merged into my Google account. That creates all kinds of privacy issues. I thought the email on my Stack Overflow account was private.Did I miss anything here?
To be clear, I wanted to preserve my privacy in the second account, but now since all my recent questions were transferred to the old account, my privacy is completely lost.
And it looks like there is no verification for the email field in my profile. So if Stack Overflow is using that info to merge, there is a very serious security bug. If it is merging based on something else, that's even worse. I think your account belongs to that user here. Let me merge it. Terrible!
