Anyone else get a messege from the forum alerting them that someone tried access your account with 5 failed attempts? Is it a bot or a person?

To webmaster :

Once again, 4times now I've received notices that some unauthorized person
Is trying to log in using my information. Has anyone figured out if these is for
Real or a web site problem ? Thxs

WE think it's spam or a robot coming in. We are working with our host to get them blocked.

Make sure you have a secure pw and don't worry about it. seriously

If it's bots there is nothing that can be done if they keep using different IP's. "Fixing" it is a moving target sometimes. We can try a couple of things but i'm not sure how effective they are. Other boards report the same issues with users. The biggest thing is make sure your pw is SECURE. upper case, lower case, numbers, characters, length, etc.

Lars and I can look at installing these 2 to help
