As mentioned in an email which you may have received, someone hacked my account and added "Hatfield" to my user name. I also lost my password in the process and had to reset that. I do not wish to have "Hatfield" on my user name, so please change that. I see it is added to a bunch of other user names, so I guess it happened to others, too, and they also likely lost their passwords. So, someone is attacking your site, or at least the accounts. Maybe you need more security or people need to choose better passwords, or both. Anyway, look into it. And if you find the Hatfield character, ask him or her to consider the law of karma - he or she is building for themself a problematic future...

the red letters that Paul was referring to was when the forums got changed and everyone was supposed to reset their passwords.
Hope this helps.
