Unrequested Password Requests March 25, 2002 12:43 AM   Subscribe

I have been out of the country for the past five days and have come back to a number of password requests sent to my email address. I haven't requested them myself.
Is this going to be someone simply trying to access my account pointlessly?

Is Mefi getting so big that crime's actually becoming a problem? Seems like there's been a whole mess of issues coming up lately and distinctly uncommunitylike.

Some 13 year old's idea of a good joke?

Not to start a war here, but isn't this exactly community-like, Crasspastor?

Frasermoo: I'm a little unclear what you mean by "password requests." As far as I understand, there's no such thing, other than you mailing Matt, and him personally responding with your password. Your phrasing makes it sound like it's being requested from you.

Su, on the login error page, you can get your password emailed to you.

Someone emailed me a couple weeks back, claiming they thought they had created an account here a year or two ago with a similar username, so they were probably just trying to see if it was theirs or not.

Oh. I've never seen it or even seen it referred to.
The benefits of always using "illnevertell" for my password, I guess.
