    Yes, it appears a couple of users (including someone with admin forum access) have had their accounts compromised through hacks on other places - where they use the same email / password combo. We highly recommend everyone enable two factor authentication which will prevent access even if your account is kompromat.

    This is a good thing though because it saves me from having to ban half the forum and delete accounts after a mole hunt. Can you imagine the drama behind that?

    Also, it only looks like they grabbed about 14 threads and some page indexes from the admin forum. Though truthfully, I haven't been through the full logs yet. Once I have, I should be able to list all compromised accounts, and track down who logged in and out of what. Then take appropriate action.

    But phew, good thing it's this and not a bunch of legitimate users that I'd have to nuke from high orbit.

  3. New accounts are not a security threat. Old inactive accounts with full access to everything are obviously there just to circumvent a ban or something of that sort.

    But new accounts that post too often are a shitposter threat, while old accounts that don't post are usually just boring lurkers. 90% of forum members only read without posting.

    Ah. I guess I have to update the conspiracy then.

    DarkUnderlord is doing this to advertise a new feature.

  6. You did not say anything that contradicts my point. Also, lurkers are creepy and should be banned anyway. They contribute nothing to the forum, not even shitposting, which is often amusing and oddly-stimulating.

    But as I said, any old account with barely any posts is potentially there to circumvent a ban. And all the people who got horribly butthurt over my innocuous suggestion just outed themselves. :lol:

    I wasn't trying to contradict your point, I was trying to imply that you are a shitposter.

  8. I know what you're trying to imply, you're just not witty enough to deliver a proper zinger.

    I'll meet you half-way on the lurkers: any account that hasn't posted in years should have its posting privileges permanently removed, but still able to log in and read stuff. There, your precious lurkers are now protected. Happy? Oh right, you're just doing a painfully-unfunny NO U routine.

    Maxie does it make you mad that this attempt to strong-arm DU and the Codex probably means another year or more tacked on to your prison sentence?

    I rather expose myself to a real security threat than your shitposting.

    And it's obvious you're someone's alt anyways. Just butthurt you didn't come up with a 'novel' idea of having a sleeper account. Or maybe it was banned. Who cares.
