Default Change Passwords - 06-10-2008, 07:35 PM

Please do not brush off the screen when you login. It is necessary for you to change your password. Remember to pick something difficult for others to guess and try not to pick something you have used in the past or on other sites because then hackers can guess at this password much more easily.

I have a very secure password-and its one that i have used for years, so it's memorized pretty well. Is it still reqired for me to change it? Will I get in trouble (banned or something) if I don't? Because I don't have any other passwords I use. It makes it a ton easier for me.

You will not get in trouble, however it is highly recommended. Support has informed us that there has been some strange activity on the database, so until it is resolved security has to be hiked up. Think of it as an extra precaution since chances are this activity has to do with user accounts.

It's a known fact that you can't remotely crack (or "hack") into someone's account unless your a network administrator (someone who supervises homepages in a certain area of a country) or if someone's given you the password

Almost 99% of the time someone claims they've been "hacked" they'd either:
a.) Made a very unsecure password that ex-boyfriends et.c could guess
b.) Written it down on a paper somewhere (usually next to the computer)
c.) Told someone who promised not to tell anyone but did

Or used their username as their password. I'm serious; I've known of instances where people have done that, and then wondered why their account was hacked.

...or got caught on one of the pop up screens. I've encountered it before on here where you will click a page and suddenly need to "login", but it really is just a popup. Lots of users on here fall into that trap, though I believe measures have been taken to prevent it from happening.
