Nah, I can use my account fine, it was just spamming my good email, but I'm going to change the email now.

Who was the sender of the emails? It may have very well been someone trying to trick you with emails (like a malicious link)..

Also, its not locking your account from your own use.. I know how it works because I have vBulletin for my own use. For the safety of the community, and to not inform anyone attempting to crack accounts, I won't go further with it.

No. Someone used a brute forcer on CF. And because the brute forcer sucked, and couldnt get the PW, it locked out hunters account.

If they have both got the same IP, mods should ban the IP.

Maybe its been sorted.

Trust me, you cant ban on ip alone. Were suck with only banning accounts

I mean I have the same ip as someone on this forums. And hes half way across the US. Lets say he did this. That would also ban me!

Now would that suck, lol. But yeah, were sortin this shit out
