Thanks for posting this. I have this one inbound thanks to you! Would have totally missed this awesome exclusive (never even heard of going gear.)
Folks, you need to make sure your profile email address is kept current. If you do not have a paid subscription, and get locked out of your account because you no longer have access to your listed email address? There is nothing we can do for you.
This is especially important now that we've instituted password compromise security - if your password is compromised elsewhere, you will be sent a verification email on your next login. If you don't have access to that email? Your account gets locked.
Help us help you, PLEASE.
