    WTF is up with having to change passwords every 30-days? I'm sure I'm not the only one that gets pissed off when we're prompted to change our password. This isn't some high level military top secret site that warrants changing passwords every 30-days you know.

    :damnit:

    Its a short term measure while the virus senders where around its being turned off at the end of this month

    and not our fault a lot of you are running crap on your computers without being protected. a lot of users got there jnr vip accounts banned because they where comprimised.

    So not so stupid now is it ?

    Not to be critical but a recent study, I saw it on yahoo, found that the changing of pw's at any interval was a total waste of time.

    As to changing pw's for other people's lack of sensible self-security seems preposterous to me.

    Why should i need to change my word because some bone head got HIS computer hacked because he's to lazy to put up a decent firewall with decent virus protections; all of which are free?

    I'm, quite frankly, tired as hell of being held responsible for other peoples stupidity, ignorance or just plain laziness.

    Why argue?

    I mean, to change pass takes 5 seconds.
    And to install your computer again from viruses, and download everything again.
    Msn/blackhat tools/aim/setting up your campaigns/all your saved information/design/html whatever you have on your computer... Takes more than a week to do. I promise man!

    It will save you alot of time, if you only change your password as HaRRo stated in the thread. Every 30 day.

    Beeing that lazy as an Internet Marketeer will not take you anywhere so.
    Go ahead and change your password when it says so.

    In the end, you will earn from it.

    Like HaRRo said, it's temporary. Even if it wasn't, once a month you have to spend 30 seconds changing you password... OMG that's like 6 min a year wasted! What an incredible inconvenience to use this FREE forum... :rolleyes:

    i really don't see why everyone is bitching. if you don't want to change your pass then just type your pass that you regularly use in the new pass box and be done with it. worked for me...

    not as bad as people who use the same password for everything and then wonder how they got hacked.

    don't forget those wonderful 'free' programs that contain key loggers.

    @OP: The time it took you to write your post is longer than it would take you to change your password for the next 6 months.

    Hear hear, often if people get ''hacked'' they have a keylogger installed on their PC's, which makes changes your password completely futile.

    Mine asked me this morning to change password as it was 30 days old, and do you know what I don't care, it took me 10 seconds and to be honest I feel safer, I get the feeling the op is 1 of these people who tries to make money in 1 day and if it doesn't succeed moves on to something else j/k, and no offence to the op, but you got all this criticism in this thread and to be honest was it worth it, when you could have just changed your pw and lead a simpler life
