How Long Will This Account Last ?

I’m not a member of many forums, but every one has been closed down bar one. I’m getting emails off guys on forums I have never been to, asking why I was leaving nasty comments to other members. When I looked on these forums there was my name and my profile pic. Computer scan was clean.
I only got back home on Friday gone, and had all this to sort out. Last post Take Care was not from me guys, if there are any posts out of line supposedly from me, can Paul delete them. I could not see any though.
If you have not already done so, I would suggest you change your email passwords as soon as you can. If someone hacked your email account, they can sign you up to any forum they want. Needless to say – use a password at least 12 characters in length with letters and numbers. The only reason I say this is that I fill the role of system administrator at my workplace, and I have had some pretty startling conversations with people about their far too simple password choice that they use for every single account they’ve created. They would rather make their password convenient for themselves rather than safe.
Good luck sorting this out.

Try https://lastpass.com/ or some other type of password generator/vault. Basically you create one hellish password you will remember to log into your lastpass account … once logged in you can use the password generator to make alphanumeric passwords for other sites and it will remember your log in information for you for those sites. Has free or paid option for more features.
I’m not affiliated with lastpass other than using and enjoying it’s features.

Hey Ken. Glad you’re back! Are we going to get reimbursed for the memorial service we held in your honor? The bar bill was, let’s say…..excessive. 😉
I had my e-mail account hacked once. Royal pain in the keister.Anonymous12 February 2013 at 3:33 am #7783
LOL. As long as Paul is buying, let’s have a welcome back party. No offense (because you joke about it so often), but I knew that couldn’t be our dyslexic friend…..the spelling was unexplicably impeccable! 😉
Seriously, really good to have you back.12 February 2013 at 3:48 am #7786
