It was addressed to one particular member and also to the whole Honorable Members Group so I'm pretty certain everybody got it.

I'm not clicking that link. I know attempts have been made to crack my password, and I can only assume the same is true for others. Are we sure crazyyank is still in control of his account?

Not quite. When somebody signs up they become a member with restricted posting rights. As soona s they make a post that proves they are human, not spambots, they get promoted to Honorable Members.

The simple answer is Very Wise, yes (several attempts, a few of which have been successful) and no, although in the last case, the content of the message is consistent with his history here.

Ah good so it's not just me.

And I'll have you all know that my member is entirely honourable!
