Anyone had someone try to log in as them recently?
I got an email this morning, that someone tried five times to log in using my screen name. They were blocked after five attempts... the ISP showed an address of Newark, NJ.
I suppose there could be a Shannon in Newark who thinks this is her screen name, but I am skeptical. Anyone else have this happen to them recently? In my over decade as a member here, I have never had an email like this before...

Shannon - how strange. There are, by the way, 10 Shannons registered with ST -- but you are the only one (registered in February 2002 -- 13 years ago!) who is simply Shannon (should change it to Shannon the Great).
I am alerting Kim to this so she can check with IB to see what's up -- but she's been in Florida and I don't know if she is back home yet.

Just a reminder -- if anyone wants to change your password, use the Settings option at the top of the screen. It is a pain to have to keep so many separate passwords, but one way the hackers get into your accounts is to steal a password you use in one place, then try it on other sites.
