IMPORTANT: Using someone else's account...

You may have noticed that a regular member's account has been hacked into and the account is being used in a maliculous way. The moderators kindly ask you not to respond to any posts from this member, we are currently looking into this and are doing the best we can to resolve the problem.

Many thanks and remember to always keep your password safe and ensure that you are the ONLY one who knows it.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

Just remember to keep smiling!

Also, choose a GOOD password - i.e. NOT your username, NOT 12345, NOT 'password', NOT something you can see from your window or your desk, NOT your birthday, street name, town etc. etc. etc. And NOT the same one for everything you do!

Its best NOT to use a real word. Try to use a random combination of letters, numbers and other characters.

To be extra safe it should be changed now and again - especially if you use a public computer.

If you're finding it hard to think of one go here to generate one...
