    Tried that and get the following message.

    We'll take you through a few simple steps to replace
    your security info. We won't use this to spam you
    we'll just use it to keep your account more secure.

    If I click on Next I get another message.

    You can't do that again just yet

    As you've recently recovered your security info, we'll
    prevent you from marking it as lost for 30 days. This
    is to prevent someone else who may have access to
    it from locking you out of your account.

    Click "Cancel" to go back to what you were doing.

    If I click on Cancel I go back to being logged in.

    Looks like you may need to wait the 30 days before trying.

    Yes, that is what I expected. What should we do with this post, hibernate it or close it?
