LOL! Oh, the damage you could cause.

If one could locate the original image to this before someone captioned it, that'd be gold for the photo album.

I just found out about this last week. This checks if your email address was compromised. Mine wasn't.

This was made by Troy Hunt MS MVP and security expert.

What a nice scam.. do you have a giant list of passwords and emails and you are not certain what are active and what are just dummy accounts? Have a site that "checks" them for being "pwnd" an you can narrow your list of actual accounts down! ;)

Could be a result of that Adobe breach last month.

LOL, quite. Though, you are showing your age.

Yeah, butted 4in1, mostly. Stainless or aluminum. People think they want period mild steel until you explain what it takes to maintain.

We once presented a coif with a massive mantel for an art display along with the museum photos and documentation. Someone complained that the museum photo was of our displayed work...

Hey, I found some old site pics. This is the one I was talking about.

Damn, it's been a while.

I don't think that guy is scamming people, he is not collecting emails or password.

I also have some emails related to when I sold chain mail. These seems to have cross interest and get used by short bus kids fairly often.


I was very confused when I read this at first until I realized you meant as in the Renn Fayre variety, and not as in the "send this letter to ten of your friends immediately or bad things will happen" sort.

Twist: Baavgai really was selling internet chain emails. He is the sole creator of the phrase "send this on to " & rand() & " of your friends or else " & direConsequences()

Going one step above text or wrong numbers, ever have someone use your email to register an account?

Some dumb-ass used my email address (number2pencil@yahoo.com) to register his POF account. I thought it was spam at first, because I didn't even know what POF was. But then I noticed (via the email notifications) that it was receiving 'inbox' messages. Turns out POF is Plenty Of Fish, some dating website. So my wife & I changed the profile information to show one of our cats.

The owners phone number can be found in the messages. The password is cat if anyone wants to mess with it.


This happened to me too! Except it was Match.com. I was checking my emails on the tram and I had like 50 new mails. The person had signed up in the Chicargo area. It was really annoying especially as they got loads more messages than I ever did when I was internet dating ;)

Then a week later I got an email about my recent job application to Burbury :o

Most recently I got a confirmation email about a recent purchase of a fleece jacket. This even had the shipping address on it so I'm tempted to send a Christmas card asking them to stop using my email.

I also used to get a lot of emails about band camp at some collage in Wisconsin but I think that must be a different person if my geography is correct!

this has never happened to me. Then again my emails have always been very unique. Always have included my last name (once in the domain!) short of 1 email where I used "ishkabible" in the name instead. My last name is rare-ish germen name. I have met people of at least 2 unrelated families in that have the same last name as mine.

Also, who else is freaked out that baavagi's real name isn't Hagrid?
