Error code 80072EF3 on signing in to xbox live

I can sign into my account (obviously), but when I start a game it asks for a confirmation email/password entry.  I enter it (correctly, because it tells me so), but then gives me the Error code 80072EF3, which wont allow me to sign in when using a game.  I've changed my password and used a the new password, and still the same problem.

I've switched games, and its the same problem. 

I've deleted my profile and cache (3 times) and then re-downloaded (3 times), and I continue to get this problem each time.    There is a thread that goes over this, and lots of people are having the same issue, but we are of course told to make a new thread.

I should mention I also tested my connection to Xbox live and everything went through just fine.   I suspect the error is on the server side, somewhere.

Thanks.

Great....still no answer a day later.  Well, typical.   I can't play my games offline because even though I log in, the games check my profile, which then says it can't verify until I do the email confirmation, which is of course what is broken.

Fix your stupid system.  I don't play Xbox Live, I only play offline, and now I can't even do that, which is retarded.  Why do I have to sign in online after I start the game just to continue where I left off?  This has to be the worst system ever designed for off-line play.
