    Arrg Loging back in after a pass word change...UGH!

    It literally took me all day to reset a password after I had changed it by suggestion of this sites administrators, ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!!! GGgggggRRRRrrrrrr !

    Kept getting "too many attempts used to log on" flags, "We will send ya a temp pass word" ...Didn't work for crap., back and forth emails , failed log ins again, finally got the whole mess to work using a P/W sent from the site that allowed me to reset mine, so I did.

    The site wouldn't work until I finally logged on with the original pass word, and for the record I am keeping the old pass word, if they block it in 366 days the I'll probably just stop coming here.

    You folks need to make the process a LOT easier...UGH!, We are not all computer code writers or pro IT people....Give the average guy a break here will ya?

    Hmmm. All I did was click on 'change password'. An email arrived with my new password. I used it. The whole thing took about four minutes.

    That's because you are "Special".

    What is this change pass word notification you all speak of? I must have missed it.

    What is the worst a hacker could do with my password to here? Log on in my name and troll a bunch of posts? No big thing I log on just about everyday and I would catch on pretty quick. Besides there are people here who think I do that anyway. <shrug:>

    The password I use here and other sites like this one is generic. I use the same pass for several sites. No issues.
