When I started here at WordPress, my name was Lucas N. Brown. When I signed up, lucasbrown (the username I had preferred) and brownianmotion (the blog title I preferred) were both taken, so I chose lucasnbrown as my username.
Since then, my middle name has changed to Augustus, so my username, ostensibly reflecting my real name, is inaccurate; thus, I attempted to set up an account under the name lucasaugustus. That account, apparently, is not available. On a whim I went back to lucasbrown.wordpress.com and brownianmotion.wordpress.com and, to a minor degree of annoyance, found that both accounts stopped posting in the summer of 2007--the only two posts on lucasbrown are the welcome-to-wordpress post and a post saying "this better have worked matt." and brownianmotion contains a single (albeit very large) post detailing a hike up Mount Whitney.
Since neither blog has a post younger than three years, I believe it is safe to assume that both blogs are "dead" and reasonable to take over. Since this should be done with the blogger's permission, I have tried to find a way to contact the controllers of lucasbrown and brownianmotion but been unsuccessful.
Is there a way to contact either of them? If not, can a hostile takeover be effected?
The blog I need help with is lucasnbrown.wordpress.com.
