The above arrived last week at the E-mail account I had established at Lakeshore Soup when I was a member there. When I originally arrived at LS last May, I had been thrown off LT explicitly for being quarrelsome, particularly with one of our recent members (whereas,in reality, it was more due to the controversial content regarding the courts and the city leaders, and three unanswered as of yet questions concerning state law I asked). I had been XLFD at LT, and signed into LS as XXLFD, as I was now an X-XLFD. In short time I shortened it to the much more pronouncible XLFD. That short period, at LS, was the only time I had that monicker you see above, anywhere.
As you can see, someone, not I, because I use a wholly different E-mail for the Torch, attempted to access my account here at the Torch, and change the password. If they had been successful, they could have got rid of this site. Who had access to that e-mail account? Well thehr Administrator had it, as any administrator can look your EMA up.
But the various other co-administrators at the Soup can also look that up, even after you've been removed, and of course anybody else who they may tell it to. Not very ethical, but not totally unexpected.
So why do I bring this to your attention? Many of you are former Soupers, some of you are currently there, at LT, or at other networking sites. Your password may be the only thing that stands between you and any unscrupulous administrators hacking into your EMA.
Play it safe, create a special E-mail address to use for such sites and create a very secure password. Never ever give out your password to anyone you don't trust with your life. Then you can go on looking for clues without any cares.
