Is there any reason this forum's webmaster is requesting my password or is some creep just "fishing"? Today at 1:05am I received an email from this site and the subject header was asking about my password.
Neither Webmaster Bill nor any ECN moderators will ever ask you for your password.
To the various degrees allowed for each area, we can edit/delete/move messages and change details in user profiles purely with our own access privileges, so there would never be any need.
Actually there is an exception to this.
Unfortunately with the present situation having separate Forum and Chat Room software packages it may be necessary to get a Members current password to allow them access to the Live chat area - but this is something that would be in response to some request by the Member themselves, not something coming out of the blue.
