Think about it: the site would need two (or three?) pieces of info to "sign you up" automatically: email address, some idea of your prefered name, and a password.
The email it's conceivable could be harvested by cookie hunting in your browser (but that's far from trivial).
Your name though? That's harder, because the site would have no idea how to relate your "real world" name to "Davide 2022" - I have no idea what you real world name is, and though I'm guessing that the 2022 was suggested by the site when "Davide" was tried but found to be already used nobody but you would know if that's a first name, surname, or nickname! It presumably has meaning to you, but it's just noise to everybody else! Laugh | :laugh:
And the password ... nobody knows that - not even this site does as it's salted and hashed and can't be recovered. So I'd suggest you use your browser to look for "Codeproject" in its stored passwords list and see what it is. Chances are it's meaningful to you as well ... but not to anyone else!

Sorry, but Occam's razor says "you signed yourself up" but I can't explain why you woudln't remember that ...

If it worries you, close the account. Problem solved.

Do you feel you fully understand the vision and purpose of the software project you're working on?
Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
