Just in case, I've never been registered on HTLAL.

What happens if the hacker/bot tries to get into your account when you're already logged in?

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

I have started getting those "you have logged in with the wrong password too many times" messages again (after logging in just once), even though I changed to a new password which temporarily solved the problem.

It's still happening - the last 2-3 times I've logged in.

Yes, there was a pause ... and now the mechanism that provokes those messages has started again.

Btw: You should use good passwords, but changing a good one to another good one doesn't in itself help you against our common enemy out there. Each time you log into the forum the 'thing' can try a few new guesses, but thanks to the limit nothing that really amounts to much. The main purpose of the attack seems to be to make our access more cumbersome in the hope that we give up and become silent.

I only noticed this today. I had a long fight to log in. I hope this can be defeated soon.

I'm trying to study enough French and Spanish so that I will be able to be an outstanding tourist next summer in Europe.
I use my Tagalog every day.
I read and watch in Spanish and French whenever I can.
My Samoan rusts away in the depths of my mind.

Had to answer several captchas just now even though I answered correctly.
