Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes
This whole thing was handled poorly, as has been said.
Given the nature of this site and the associated message board, much more of a heads up should have been given.
We already have one member who spent the better part of the day worrying that her ex husband had hacked her account, and I'm sure there are countless others who have not spoken up yet, that are experiencing the same sense of panic.
And although this hasn't caused ME any real stress, I did take it upon myself to change my email account password (which is not a big deal) as I originally thought my account here had been hacked, and I was receiving no email communications from TAM, including password reset messages.
As an (almost) daily user of TAM, I did not see one single notification of this password change, even though I'm sure the powers-that-be assumed everybody would see it.
And given that many users pop in here from time to time (ie. not daily) and many more take breaks for weeks, or even months at a time, you'd think the TAM braintrust would have rolled this out gradually, with plenty of notice, and the opportunity to change our own passwords LONG before it was forced upon us, leading to almost everybody being locked out without proper warning.
Hopefully people like Mem can get their original accounts back, too...
