People who can't even get their own email address right, and/or sign up to social media by "guessing" or inventing email addresses on the spot. Not spammers, real people. I pointed out and explained this 4 times to someone on instagram (that doesn't require you to confirm your email to use it) who relinked my email to their instagram account 8 strawberry floating TIMES over the past few weeks, each time I revoked it. I mean, how long does it take to twig that you're not receiving the confirmation links because it's wrong?
This dipshit thought I was staking out a claim for "the green gecko" - they were, one of their last messages was "the green gecko is mine", and didn't understand the difference between that and spamming my 9 year old Gmail address.
At that point I knew I might as well give up.
So finally I got pissed off unlinking it every other day, being brushed off by this giant noob and called them an idiot, explaining what they were doing, and why it was a security risk as well as wasting other people's time, again. I deleted my comments because I couldn't be arsed with it anymore, I block DMs from people who aren't mutual followers (which is why I wasn't seeing them), and I don't really "get" instagram anyway so don't really care for it. I couldn't find the bloody option for DMs because the app is barebones as gooseberry fool on Android (always has been) and I don't want to give someone direct access to me if they're this thick. Anyway, here's the result. Enjoy the insanity of this gooseberry fool. (It took them 3 weeks of registering my email to figure out what was wrong.)
I had to send them a strawberry floating screenshot of the email.
No matter how many times some dumbass enters someone else's email or just literally makes one up whether or not it exists, instagram keeps sending you account confirmation emails. For 3 strawberry floating weeks. Jesus, strawberry float off.
Next time this happens, I'm resetting the password and deleting the account. It's strawberry floating annoying.
Oh and I really wanted to point out that a gecko IS a lizard but I managed to resist. My favourite part is calling me a "fake hacker" and asking me not to "frame" their boyfriend for, what exactly, I have no idea.
Anyway rant over, I hope I didn't spoil her poor bae's nap. I'm not sure I've ever had a more unintelligible interaction on the Internet over something so stupid.
This reminds me of the time at uni someone signed up for Facebook using the email address all.students@[university].ac.uk because they thought that was their email address. Chaos ensued as all 4000 students received a shitslide of emails every day for weeks about pointless gooseberry fool
