Re: site user password intrusion info

I'm glad I used my alias email address versus my actual email address and my password here is nothing like any of my other passwords on any other forums/accounts.

Judging by the other messages, I think they were grabbing any web based email accounts and hoping the passwords matched up. Then fire off password reminders to grab other stuff.

Just goes to show you, make your passwords unique for all services you use.

Yeah, I had about few dozen web sites that used the same password as this site and a few others that used a variation of the same password. Including my Battle.NET account.

Needless to say, those sites now use random passwords now that have been generated with random characters.
