    I hope they let you make more money, but it is always a bit concerning when a large site lets people repeatedly do something they feel is worthy of a ban.

    I forgot my password to a certain site the other day, and they let me keep trying passwords until I got it right... It's also the only site I've had my password stolen from.

    a few months ago I was deleting as many accounts as I could. so my identity would (hopefully) be less likely to get stolen.

    fishing for deleted accounts is prime. You can mess around with their account because they believe it's gone. Just telling you how hackers think.

    I woke up to a notification from Apple last week (or 2 weeks ago, something like that) that one of my passwords was found in a darkweb leak. The worst part was that I actually used that password for like 80% of all my accounts. :emoji_grin: Had to spend like 6 hours changing passwords on all my accounts that morning (was like 350+ different websites). But now all my passwords are different, randomly generated by and securely stored in the iCloud Keychain, so if any one website gets hacked, I no longer have to spend 6 hours changing all my passwords lol. :elefant:

    I really should do the same. I certainly wasn't careful with my info when I was younger, so who knows who has my information at this point.

    I hope you keep making money. I'm thinking they allow it because you aren't doing anything harmful, but it just reminded me of all of the security issues large companies have.

    I forgot the answer to a security question a few months back, and customer service just gave me the answer after asking me to verify basic personal info anyone could know.

    I really need to do that, but I only ever change the password affected. I claimed to be concerned about my personal info, but then I keep and reuse passwords for years and years.

    I still don't know how you knew my age :tinfoil:

    I actually just guessed based on her messages. I remember seeing @WalledPillow say something like "I thought I was old, but you guys are like dinosaurs" when someone said they were 36. Also saw her say that she already hit 30. So if you put those two things together, 31 wasn't a hard guess to make. :p

    Seriously though, some of those quals are TOO specific. Like people who are between the ages of 39 and 41, live in the southeast regions of Dallas, and are attracted to women wearing black low top sneakers.

    Hater. What's wrong with that? I'm in Texas, near Dallas. I am 41 years old and I have no problem with those sneakers. :)
