    This is getting crazy.  I keep getting these notices also and it had me concerned.   I am glad that I saw this post and that I am not the only one.   At first it just seemed like someone was set on hacking my profile.  Could this just be a system malfunction?

    I also received one either yesterday or day before. So far so good.

    I received two more emails saying someone has tried to reset my password.

    I don’t buy it.

    I got 11 (11) password reset emails today

     

    if they don’t stop, I am just going to stop using the site as I don’t feel safe, simple as that.

     

    and I have not seen 1 thing from the admins on this. really not good, when it should be up to the admins to ensure the forum is safe, and that issues are looked at

    well: that just about says it all, we don’t know who the admins are, so who do we go to if we have a concern.

     

    do we even know when the last time martin was on here?

    I received four such emails yesterday.  It’s annoying, but I’m not that concerned about it.  I use a freemail address for this site and others that aren’t for legitimate business, like banking, et al.  I have several freemail addresses that I use for games, forums, social media, etc.

    I tend to delegate different addresses too. I have not really kept track but have noticed a couple of emails. I wouldn’t be surprised if these were from internet robots trawling their way trying accounts. I am surprised there is no admin attempt to block this, if so. Not really a problem if you use a good secure password, and, as Test implies, keep social away from business. Don’t forget that this happens everywhere but, maybe, admin are more pro-active elsewhere on limiting the intrusion. Another thing to notice, from time to time, that there are suddenly lots of new members overnight who never post or anything. I think this is a similar phenomenon.
