Once upon a time I set up a gmail account strictly to use as an account for things like city data, facebook etc. in order to keep spam from my primary private acount.
Since I didn't really use it, I kept forgetting the password.

Now, I've forgotten my facebook password, but, if I could figure out how to ask for a reset, it would send it to my gmail account.

To make matters worse, in tryng to figure out how to get into my gmail account - Google hijacked me into some google gmail thing and I can't even get to my old gmail account - it just keeps taking me to this google gmail page asking me to set up a new something.

Plus i think I have a google account under a different name for you tube and I'm not sure how that happened. I only really look at you tube once in a while.

How do I straighten this out? What's up with Google are they trying to take over the world?
