New Password Email?
« on: February 20, 2015, 01:12:53 AM »
I only check email once or twice a week and apparently I got one from here 3 days ago of it saying I forgot my password. My phone, if I logged out, would automatically log me in but I'm always logged in so not really an issue.

Did someone else attempt to log into my account?

Same mail appeared in my mailbox earlier today ... someone trying to hack the site?

Perhaps God is calling.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

God needs to pilfer passwords? Did he misplace his omniscience again.
Besides, my password is "God" ... oops, shouldn't have said that, I suppose.

It's one of the reasons I'm an atheist today.  I decided to take my religion seriously, and that's when it started to fall apart for me.

kind of looks like it.  I did not get such an email, so it looks like someone is just trying to get into your account by resetting the password.  they might also be trying to get into your email.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

I got a couple of those emails too; just recently reset my email password, as it happens.

Password is different for my email and is between 12-15 characters long. Good luck to them. I'm lucky I remember it.

Okay, I added more characters, and a question.

Does the question have to do with the cat?  Is it bigger than a bread box?

No and no.

And your next question: maybe.
