Hi Everyone!
I have a question....

I registered riadbachir[put at-character here], but then I deleted it in order to register "riad.bachir[put at-character here]" with a dot between first and last name. But it sais that its not available, which is not true.
How long do they keep the accounts befoore the actually recycle them???

Too bad you didn't know that you can put a dot anywhere in your gmail username.

You already had riad.bachir and r.iadbachir and ri.adbachir and so on...

Riad, Ades is right. For G//ail, riad.bachir its the same as r.i.a.d.b.a.c.h.i.r, etc. BTW, after 9 months is that Google recycle the account.
