Password request

on May 18, 2015 at 03:04 UTC ( #1126939=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Someone has been repeatedly asking for my password. I am going to assume it's a mistake, but please stop! UPDATE: I was hoping that whomever was trying for the password would read this, then realize that they were in fact using the wrong "username"

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Yeah, having a common username risks some of that. Somebody likely forgot their password and partially forgot their username and e-mail address. Digging through the logs, my best guess at who: the owner of sandygallant.

    But, whoever it is, if they read this thread, they can search through all of the users with "sandy" as part of the name via ?node_id=3989;HIT=sandy;U (just hit the "Search" button after following that link) in hopes of one of them looking familiar.

    That feature certainly tries to avoid allowing people to discover if a particular e-mail is being used at PerlMonks, but that also makes it rather opaque and vague so people can end up trying it over and over (because they get no solid feedback and then also get no e-mail).

    - tye        

      whoever it is

      FWIW, i believe that should be whomever it is.

        You are mistaken. (Unless you meant to be "funny", in which case you merely forgot the smiley.)

    I think this is far too vague for anyone to know how to help you. And it doesnít sound like itís related to the site at all.
