Thank you! I have an account at Github because the author of my favorite Fx extensions has his forums there for reporting bugs and other issues. I had no idea that Github created an account for me at Gravatar without bothering to tell me. I had never heard of Gravatar until I read the arstechnica article and the comments that followed. Unreal! The last thing a privacy minded user would want would be a gravatar! I followed the instructions and deleted the gravatar account I have but didn't know I have!
I also deleted my github account. I don't know how I will talk to the extensions author who is Japanese (a language I don't speak or read) ....I guess at Mozilla's addons site.
