    I was able to get in on my second attempt by changing some of my answers from the right ones to the wrong ones:

    Please select the range that includes the year the home was built for the address that you provided.

        1910 to 1919
        1920 to 1929
        1930 to 1939
        1940 to 1949
        NONE OF THE ABOVE

    Previously I answered "none of the above" because my current residence was built in 2002 (I have lived there for more than two years). This time I selected the age of my previous address. That worked.
    You currently or previously resided on one of the following streets. Please select the street name from the following choices.

        PRESQUE ISLE
        1ST
        ROMAN
        VETERAN
        NONE OF THE ABOVE

    Previously I answered "none of the above" because I never lived on any of these streets. This time I answered "1st" because six years ago I worked on 1st St.

    Luckily no questions about former cell phone numbers, because I still couldn't answer that.

    Experian and the other credit agencies have all sorts of old and incorrect information, don't know what's old and what's current, and then ask these confusing questions. Nice way to torture people.

    Fortunately, the fact that Experian has my named spelled wrong was not a problem. I've never been motivated to have them correct it before, but I suppose it's a good idea. Who knows what their database might be used for next?

    We decided to move the center farther to the right by starting the whole debate from a far-right position to begin with. - Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay
