We were run off the Aerodrome for asking too many questions of the great OZ!

There used to be a page explaining why it had been closed. Something about the tone of the forum and attitude of the contributers IIRC. As you've discover most regulars have set up shop at a different forum.

I got that email as well.


Whoever did the hacking has our email addresses.

email addresses are common user names for a variety of sites, Amazon, for example.

If the Aerodrome was not storing passwords in a secure manner, they could also have been compromised.

If they were, and the hackers were able to match emails to passwords, it could be expensive!

I hope everyone uses different passwords for every site they use.
