    I knew the original e-mail was bogus right from the start, I'm just surprised it didn't land in the junk folder. Hats off to the admins here for the quick response. You guys are great.

    Thanks Duncan[emoji6]Now I can't login in on the website. I tried to change my password using Safari's password suggestion and I thought it had taken it. Then after attempting to login it doesn't recognize it. I can't message the admin from the page either. But I think I am posting here. I say dump the webpage or move it to something that is modern enough to handle the most secure passwords which require special characters, numbers, and upper and lower case characters.

    So my attempt to login was with email instead of the screen name as username. Good thing Safar saved a previous password with the email username. It also saved the newer one with the Screenname. Now the screen name is associated with the correct password in Safari. Wew👍

    I ignore all emails , am anti social with humans, have paid a fee to have my name changed, lost 65 pounds on a Zen diet and have changed my appearance making it very difficult for those who did know me to reconize me. It feels like I'm born again. You should try it sometime.

    If I lost 30 kgs, I would quite probably be dead. So being born again would be a requirement.

    I'm not sure this is the case. The email address I use for Progressive Ears was generated specifically for it and has never been given to anyone else. It had only received my sign up and validation mails before the hack. Since the hack it's started to receive spam. There's no way other than via Progressive Ears that this address could have been discovered so I'm afraid I think the hackers got more data than you think.

    If I'm reading correctly, they got your e-mail address and probably sold it. So, they didn't get any more data than Duncan described.

    I read Duncan's message as the hacker "didn't see" our email addresses, but benbell is suggesting the hackers may have seen them. I've also noticed an increase in spam in recent weeks where I'd rarely get any before. I'm not asserting Duncan is incorrect though.

    I have to agree with this. I never received spam on the email address I use for this site before the hack took place.

    I got spam from at least some of them too. Fortunately, Gmail trapped all of them with its spam filter.
