    My main email was included in this list, last year. After that, I made it a number one priority to change all my passwords to random hexadecimal numbers that were at least 30 characters long. Never using the same password for different accounts. And I use KeePass now.

    I panicked after seeing this thread as my paypal is connected via yahoo. Later realized just a stupid guy bumping old threads.
    Oh well.

    I've always suggested threads should automatically close themselves after 30 days of inactivity unless the OP posts to it or an admin. But, yep, oh well.

    And yet you're bumping up an old post? Why? Just to be a jackass?

    I'm not the one who bumped the thread. Someone else did a few minutes before my post. I guess their account and posts got deleted.
