Cannot post comments on WordPress blogs

  1. When I try to post a comment on scribblesandsnaps.com (or any other WordPress blog) with the email address "[email redacted]" I get a login form the following message:
    "You are being asked to login because [email redacted] is used by an account you are not logged into now. By logging in you'll post the following comment to Geotag Photos with Android Camera and digiKam:"

    I don't remember having ever signed up, but I may have. I do associate with the owner of that blog and it is possible that I have commented in the past. So I click "Lost your password?" and get a form asking for my email address. I enter "[email redacted]" and I get the following error:
    "Unable to reset password
    I'm sorry, but we weren't able to find a user with that login information."

    So, if a user with that login information cannot be found, why is it bugging me to login when I try to post with that address?

    The above paragraphs I entered exactly into the a href="https://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=recovery">account recovery form as linked to from the "Unable to reset password" page, and got this frustrating message:
    "Your contact email is the same as your account - if you can receive emails you should try the password reset form instead."

    That's right: an infinite loop.
