I received a warning from Google that my forum password was in a data breach so it might be worthwhile you all changing passwords.

I think something bizarre is happening with Google today. I've not had the data breach notice for this site but it has warned me that some sites are "possible forgeries" even though they aren't (one was the Morgan Motor Company and another was ITV).

I dunno, the last time I attempted to change my email PW, and / or / forum password..I got locked out of the forum for months...and it's virtually impossible to access the forum, to contact ADM..to have get back on..if you can't log in.....so I'm a bit leery of going thru it again...lol

It's true that resetting your password locks you out (although strangely that didn't happen to me earlier when I did so, so maybe that's changed).

Send an email to unlockme ( at the domain of ) dissolute . com . au if you reset your password, telling me your username, and I'll reactivate you.
