Yeah, that's the story with Lappdogg Jr's account hack. Seems the spammers now are trying to hack members accounts because they can't figure out how to make their own. We had another member hit with that last week. I posted an announcement advising members to tighten their passwords just after, and I believe there is an email in the works.

However, we can't really do anything to control the internets outside of the forum, it's just a sign of the state of the world
