1. A very simplistic advice. It may work for a few accounts but most users have created dozens, if not hundreds of accounts. There is a very good reason why zombie accounts exists – people quit using them and forget about them. Unless you have been diligently recording the site, userid and password for each account you create, there is no way of remembering all of them, or even a large portion of them. The only hope is if you use a password manager and have not been quick to delte unused passwords.
