See screenshot: This username "*" is already taken, please choose another. Another has been provided.

If I enter a different forum username it tells me that the account is already associated with another user ID (I suspect the first one I tried).

How am I supposed to continue?

Username availble This username "***" is already taken, please choose another. Another has been provided. Account exists

It is just telling you the username you tried is already used by someone else. You need to pick a different username. –  Jason Jul 30 '12 at 12:39

Please re-read. It does not allow me to choose another. –  Rob Jul 31 '12 at 2:13

Go to Apple ID support web page at http://www.apple.com/support/appleid/ and use the contact support button.

Your account is in a state where the tool can't let you continue and you may need a human on the other end to know what exactly to do. A search of the public knowledge base shows nothing that you should do in this case.
