Default If you got a Failed Login Notification email, do not be alarmed

I got a couple of email notifications forwarded to me this morning regarding failed login attempts from an IP address originating in the Russian Federation. It was a forum spam program looking for accounts with weak passwords to exploit. It was not successful in accessing any of the accounts here, and I've blocked that address from accessing this site.

Had it been successful, it would likely have confined its activities to posting spam or changing the URL field in your profile, but if you use the same password on more than one site there's a chance it would have tried to use it elsewhere. If you're concerned, perhaps this is a good opportunity to read up on choosing a strong password or make sure you're using different passwords on each site you're registered with.

Default HELP - Delete Profile


Since I'm not getting any response to the 'contact us' at the bottom of the screen, I thought I would ask here.

How do I delete my profile??
