Ok, because the issue is that I heard it was possible to do some sort of IP spoofing or hack someone computer to do stuff from his IP/internet connection. A person in particular could have been trying to attempt hacking various member accounts to cause trouble. Also if you happen to live close to other forum members, the person could simply have tracked down your location/school from IRC logs and simply went from a school to another to do his shit. It's more speculation than anything else, but we never know.

Anyway I'm glad the issue on this side is resolved. If anyone else ever try to bring this up to start a fight on IRC or forums out of nowhere (for example if you say hi, I made new progress on TaNF, then suddently someone arrives and brings up what happened), he's gonna get warned (or banned if he already got warnings) for trolling and if that person kept doing it it would be harrassment.

Personally I'll let you and Happybobjr go away with just a warning to either not do this again (if it happened to be you) or to keep your account secure (if it wasn't you), because we have no proof about who it was, one downside of Internet anonymity. But in the future, I need to edit the forum rules disclaimers to say that each member is responsible for their account security and that if their account is left insecure and is compromised, the punishments for any bad action done from that account will be account-based and user-based instead of just the latter. In other words, someone could end up being banned because of negligence that lead to disrupting the forums or channel.

On my temporary journey back into admin, I'll probably add a red notice at the top of the Login page encouraging public computer users to uncheck the remember me box and to set a very low login time, such as 5 minutes, or simply not log in altogether.

Also remember that if you login on your e-mail account and forget to logout, anyone could send himself a password reminder through your e-mail account and befoul your posts or profile.
