    SmackDown,

    No registered member is able to change anything in your profile - please refrain from pointing fingers to other registered members; not done.

    Please drop me an email: webmaster@wilders.org and we'll sort it out.

    regards.

    Seeing no help was provided, I had to create a new name, hope the person (snake) who did this is happy. It's a shame on a security site we have no privacy or security.

    Help has been provided - please check your inbox. The email adress provided didn't match the email adress belonging the registered user name. For obvious security reasons, we will not provide a new password in case the both don't fit. So far as for "security" and "privacy".

    I'm far from happy with your comment on this site/board; in case you don't feel happy over here: delete your account. This remark might seem harsh to you an others reading this, but I won't tollerate

    This board is well known for tollerance - and rightly so. There are limits nevertheless. Please refrain from unfounded remarks.

    regards.

    Harsh, I would say you, You provided no help nor did you identify who change my password, telling me you can't help is not exactly providing help. All you have to do is rest the password back to what it was before it was changed.

    That e-mail address was hacked, maybe by the same person who hacked my password here. So I can't access that e-mail address anymore cause the password was changed on it also.

    SD,

    If both your email AND your forum password was hacked I really think you are barking up the wrong tree. Perhaps your system was hacked and a key logger was installed (or there is a sniffer upstream from you on your net).

    First password here changed, then e-mail password changed, mole come from this site, I think Paul know this also, so he ask me to leave rather than tell me who changed my password.

    Sure but your email too? I realize that the other circumstance would make things suspect but given that your email changed and the stretch needed for that user to change THAT...

    Identifying is our business, and ours only. We will not go public in case this would be a proven fact - and it isn't in this case.

    As for reverting passwords: we can't even read them; asterix is all we see - and rightly so. We can alter/modify passwords on request - that's why I've asked you te drop me an email - security verification.

    No it wasn't. "SmackDown" has been posting over here as a registered user - coming with that one and the same email address. Our logs show no discrepancy here. No hack in any way.

    Anyway: you have registered under a new name in the meanwhile. That's OK. Nevertheless, as stated before: no inuendo's over here. Enjoy your stay.

    regards.

    Hi SD,

    Please stop your accusations. :mad:
    It is impossible to change your password without knowing the old one.
    Since you indicated your e-mail address was compromised as well, you obviously have more serious problems then being unable to log in.
    Use the other account you just made and get help instead of enemies.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I have, after taken some time off, realized Paul's advise to delete my account was for the best, I have delete SmackDown1, Paul will have to delete SmackDown, I can't access the account.

    I still strongly believe that Spy1 had something to do with it, his IM's were full of hatred, foul language and threats, totally unprofessional on any standards, caused I disagreed with him.

    People disagree all the time, no need in threating people claiming he knew my IP address, and I would be sorry, unless I shut up and moved on.

    I let it go until, I tried to log on, I am unable to do so, if that happen to you, would you not suspect him? No explanation has been given to why my password was changed, some theories.

    I have a lot of e-mails, and I post on other forums, only e-mail address hack was the one I use for this site. The only forum password hack was this forum, On place anyone threaten me was this forum, so many things lead to this forum.

    I resign from this forum, you win Spy1.

    Dear SD - I haven't "won" anything - nor have I done anything.

    This statement of yours is a total lie:

    "People disagree all the time, no need in threating people claiming he knew my IP address, and I would be sorry, unless I shut up and moved on."

    No such communication went from me to you in any shape, fashion or form - not by PM, not by IM and not by email.

    I'm amazed that you claim you could receive anything from me here, since supposedly you couldn't access your account (how else would you get a PM unless you were logged in?).

    Your account may have been hacked - it may not have been - I don't know.

    But I do know that if it was, it certainly wasn't done by me.

    I'm a poster here, just like you - not a mod or an admin of the site.

    I have no access to your - or anyone else's - account-related stuff.

    Also, I'm not a hacker or any type - I don't have the time, the inclination nor (truthfully) the knowledge to be one.

    You might want to look to some of the other people who posted in the thread you're referring to for the "source" of your problems.

    Because I'm not it. Pete

    There has been no email hack. By request the SmackDown account has been deleted.

    No need to keep this thread alive any longer; it's been closed.

    regards.
