I have just recieved an email from the Webmaster, as below [with my password instead of the blanks]:


Don't worry, we all forget something sometimes. Normally not things of such importance as this, but oh well...!

Your Palin's Travels password is: *****

Thing is, I have NOT forgotten my password, and did not ask webbie for a reminder!!

Is this troll work do you think?

It certainly aint right!!!

Exactly the same thing happened to me this morning.

I certainly hope that whoever sent the message did not have a way to intercept the Webmaster's reply with my password. I've written to the Webmaster to ask why he thought I'd asked to be reminded of my password.

After having been attacked in the chat room by a troll who promised to mount "a massive spam attack" on me, I'm understandably paranoid. While I'm waiting for the Webmaster's reply, can anyone think of an innocent reason why the Webmaster would think Anne and I had requested our passwords?

I had this once ages ago, although nobody else mentioned it at the time - probably just a computer glitch. Would be reassuring to find out for sure, though.

Just be very, very careful...

I haven't gotten a password email yet. I'm keeping an eye out, though. I'm not particularly popular with trolls either.

:P

Um, I stand corrected...

Oh, dear...I just got it.

It's weird. I posted that and then I got the email.

I think this calls for an "Oh, crap..."
 
Re: Password by bandgeek512 on 8 November 2006 6:30pm
 
...This is a test...

I think that every time we post on here, we get that password email. Is anyone else getting those? They all say the same thing.

I've gotten like 4 or 5 of these emails.

Oh yikes - I`ve just got a password email too!

Webbie, have you been at the cooking sherry again ...

This is strange, I cant think of any reason for being sent your password without asking. To be on the safe side Id change your password; actually you should do this periodically anyway to make them harder to crack. I know thats a real pain but its the only way you can keep it safe.

As Anne has posted, here is what they look like:


**************************

Your Palin's Travels password is: *********

**************************



If you are getting these emails, then keep an eye on your account and posts. It seems like the reminder is being sent out every time I post on here.

If you're getting these too, change your password and try not to post! If you do post, make sure you change your password after you get the reminder email.

It might be a glitch or it might be a very smart troll. Just be careful. :)

I have now gotten the message from the Webmaster three times. I got the first one before I posted here and the second and third after I posted the above. Let's see if this post elicits a fourth.
