How to get my original account name back?

  1. When I renamed my account and the day after tried to change it back to the original name I got following message: Sorry, that username already exist! This is obviously not correct. Just to try, I typed in the original name and the response was that this site is no longer available because the author has deleted it.
    Blog url: http://palatebud.wordpress.com/

  2. Username accounts are never deleted at WordPress.com.

    Botice here when you change usernames what the instructions state:

    Once you change your username you will not be able to change it back and the old name will not be available for anyone else to use. http://en.support.wordpress.com/change-your-username/

    The URLs of blogs that are deleted are not recycled and cannot be used by anyone.
