    Sorry for any confusion but this account had been hacked and was pming members about amazon gift cards and other stuff. It wasn't me. BassTrackerBoats was able to get things straightened out, ban the loser and get me back on.

    I thought these forum softwares have adequate security and the forum accounts can't get hacked unless the database is hacked. I have a pretty lame password too. Time to change it, I guess.

    I can't speak to the forum's security measures but I think if someone wants to hack an account, and the password isn't strong enough, it can be done.

    Hmm, you may be right. I wasn't talking about BHW in particular, though. I was talking about the forum software XenForo and vBulletin.

    BHW now has two part authentication for your account. I am sure that loclhero set that up and I would recommend that everyone do.

    You're a persistent little bugger aren't ya. No worries but neither. I wouldn't get out of bed in the morning to drive one of those.
    Go big or go home young man. Bye
