    Default Password Change Required?

    Browsing around the forum just now, went to look at a post and got a notice that I had to change my password.
    Couldn't access anything on the site until I did so.

    Just curious, is something up or is this going to be a regular event?

    Happened to me too, OTD. Kind of glad that I was not the only one. The message did say that my P/W had expired.

    My experience, and my question exactly. I've got a bank that does this periodically. I've got one and a half pages of my physical phone directly so filled with obsolete passwords it's hard to tell which is current.

    Happened once before about 4 months ago. Could be a lot of reasons - hacking, data base cull, db corruption, server swap/update. I'm actually pleasantly surprised the site is up as consistently as it is, considering the traffic.

    Sure would be nice if one of the powers that be could pop in here and let us know that was on the up and up and not some kind of phishing thing that happened.

    Where is somebody? Unexplained password change demands are an unnerving thing.
