    It is what it is. Cyber attackers seem to just want to hit everything they can. Practice? I don't know.
    I believe it was google who notified me that the website was unsafe and that there had been two cyber attacks in the past couple of days when I tried to enter the website.

    Yeah and I had a message when I tried to go the website on Firefox and not on IE. As soon as that happened a few times where it blocked the website, I messaged the Community Editor. Later on I checked and there was a message posted and a reply. If they weren't experiencing any issues, it would take them time after getting emails from users talking about issues to look into it.

    The point is they addressed it as soon as they could on the forum.

    Yes it's annoying to reset a password daily but no one said you had to be on this forum.

    I think it's CCIXQ. His Chinese Intel overlords realized his misinformation campaign wasn't working so they decided to step up the pressure.

    Really? I better "check myself." Big talk on an Internet forum...

    Oh he's been here for two years - wow. (Slow clap starts now). Bravo to him. I still think that maybe he needs to cut the people who run this some slack and that if he can do better, give them a hand.

    By the way (it's just an Internet forum).

    Thanks, caliny. Since he/she/it has made my Ignore list, the drivel is now hidden.

    BS~That would probably be a better option for me, too.

    Candy, you missed my point. He (and others) have been here through the old and new forum moderation and seen NO improvement other than the smileys. At numerous points, he HAS offered suggestions and help. However, when they seem to fall on deaf ears and no response was forthcoming from admin (unlike it had been previously), frustrations build up. Since that was before your time here, and your responses (here and elsewhere) indicate that you are not aware of those discussions, perhaps you need to take a step back and realize that there IS a context for what you're reading--and it's one of which you're unaware. It's as simple as that.

    The reduction in spam has been excellent, too. I guess we have to take the good with the bad.

    Great point about context, Cali.

    Now granted, I haven't been here for very long. But I have been on messaging boards far slower, buggier, and spammier than this one. Running a giant clusterfuck like this isn't something I would like to do, nor do I envy someone who does.

    It does seem a little unfair to condemn the Community Editor and the tech people who run this site. The International Monetary Fund, IMF, just got hacked and they have some of the most sophisicated people and computers in the world. If it can happen to them it can happen to any other group. Still, I would like to know who did this and why.
