Earlier today I received an email saying that the email address of my bitcointalk account (theta) was changed, and then another one saying that my password was changed.
The only option available was to lock the account and then try to recover it.
I did lock it and then checked the instructions for recovery (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=497545.0). They require signing a bitcoin address or a PGP key that was previously mentioned and therefore is known to belong to the account holder.
The problem is I haven't publicly disclosed either so according to these instructions I can't recover my account.
I find this hard to believe.
First of all, how come an email address change is allowed without confirmation or at the very least time-locking from the previous email address? And how come I can't recover it now, again by returning ownership to the original email address?
There must be another way to recover it. What shall I do?

Read the sticky in meta.

When the subject of buying BTC with Paypal comes up, I often remember this: 

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Can you sign a message from this address?

Don't be obsessed with your desires. The Zen philosopher Basho once wrote, 'A flute with no holes, is not a flute... and a donut with no hole, is a Danish.' He was a funny guy.
