Today for the second time I got an email supposed from the forum about the thread long or short hair in the summer. It was about some protein supplement. I mmediately deleted it. Last month I got something similar can't remember what it wat now. Somehow we are being hacked and I don't like it one bit. I do a lot of my company's business on my home computer now that I am recuperating at home. What do we need to do to stay safe? I am afraid that I will have to change all my passwords now. Anyone else having this problem?

I read those today. They posted on 4 or 5 threads. I don't think it will affect your security.

You should be just fine, in order for people to be able to join more easily we had to have it this way other wise we have to rely on the admins to get our new people in.

At any rate, things should be fine for you and everyone else, I was informed about it this morning and have since removed all the post and banned that user. All is good

I saw those, too, and just deleted. They are on the forum, Lucile, so I don't think we have to worry about the poster having our email addresses.

Thanks, Heather, for taking care of it. Sometimes people just manage to sneak in!

No, I haven't gotten any emails from the forum that weren't authentic. If you get one again and you suspect the forum please forward it to one of us and we'll look into it, but its likely coming from somewhere else. I'd guess if the email list did get hacked, we'd have all gotten it.

Hope all is well now. I got here too late to see any of it. I haven't gotten any bogus email though.
