I am the maintainer of the ffi-rzmq gem. When I execute "gem push" I get the following output:

Charless-Mac-Pro:ffi-rzmq cremes$ rbx -S gem push ffi-rzmq-0.9.7.gem
Pushing gem to https://rubygems.org...
You do not have permission to push to this gem.

I reset my API key and updated the ~/.gems/credentials file with it but I still get that error. Any hints?

    Hmmm, I may see the problem. When I look on that page, one of the "owners" listed is #44858. When you click on that and try to email that account, it pulls up [email blocked] as the email address. Somehow that account is no longer associated with me.

    Is that your correct current email?

    My correct current email is git@chuckremes.com for any coding related activities. You can confirm that by looking at my github page (https://github.com/chuckremes).

    The [email blocked] address is defunct and I no longer have access to it. I updated this stuff everywhere else but I forgot to do it for ruby gems. :(

    Did you end up creating a different rubygems.org account then? What ID is it?

    Oh crap, I do have two accounts. :(

    I was able to get into the other account (wow, that's an old password). I'll disable the superfluous account (this one).

    Sorry for wasting your time.

    I was wrong; I apparently did have two accounts. Account #44858 has now been updated to use the handle "chuckremes" instead of the number.

    If there is a way to delete or disable my second superfluous account ("cremes") let me know and I will do so.

    Sorry for wasting your time. I've sent a present to you as compensation. :)
