  3. Yes. I went to the support documentaion and searched and found this dor you:

    Gravatar IDs
    Do you have a funny looking username assigned through Gravatar that starts with g2-* ?
    If so, this was made when an imported Gravatar account had an email address not matching an account with WordPress.com. Please login to WordPress.com and then visit http://wordpress.com/wp-changelogin.php to change this username.
