    can we be sure that she wasn't notified?

    the user didn't even attempt to use the app until "a few months" after the issue was discovered. i strongly doubt this user type would notice or care about an automated email from the service.

    but then again, there's no way of telling for certain one way or the other. there's a lot of assumptions and accusations being thrown around here based on very little information from an angrily written blog post.

      While "recycle" a user name was never a good practise, I am actually ok with a popular user name (on any system) going to a random new user. But the fact, a popular user name had gone to an "insider" that just doesn't seems right at all.
