I was trying to ask a question anonymously on one of the SE sites, so I logged out and came back, etc. I may have missed something, because after asking the question, the username does not show up as "anon"; it shows up as "userXXXXX". It is a live user account apparently, one which I created with the same e-mail address as my main account, but one which I never finished registration for.
Since it played out like this, I went ahead and tried to finish registration, just to be able to do things like comment on the question and such. The problem is that, since no password was ever created, and since the e-mail address is the same as with my main account, there doesn't appear to be a clear way to finish registration for the account.
Is there a way to handle this other than contacting support? Trying to register doesn't work, and using account recovery only leads back to my main account.
