So you asked for them to be closed?
Presumably this is the thread you are referring to from 11 years ago https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=48&topicid=16531
If that's the case, it's not just like Brad. That account was closed without prior notice, yours is following some discussion with TM.
You should probably get back to TM in writing, explain why you had the extra account, and why it should be kept open. They will frown upon anyone using false names though.
