The password I received didn't work. I had to reset it again and that password worked but was a PITA.

OK, I had a separate issue with my e-mail on the lap top. Reset, nothing to it. If this bugs you....don't get into the landscaping business. You have demanding clients sometimes, pesky insects, did I mention rain and rain and sometimes snow. Then someone steals all of your tools, pokes holes in the bottom of your truck fuel tanks to steal $8 worth of diesel. Then the State changes the rules on this and that and the State Homebuilders Assoc gets a law through the State legislature where I have to show proof that I'm a citizen. None of the guys sponsoring the bill are Veterans and let me tell you.....that irritates the heck out of hard working veterans, especially of foreign wars....Change a password...nothing to it. I do it pretty frequently anyway...cause I'm always forgetting them. I'd use the same one for everything if I could figure out how to. M1911

My password at ColtForum was changed and I never received an email telling me what the new one is. I expect a lot of members are just going to decide it's not worth it and go elsewhere. I wonder if this was the plan of VerticalScope all along ?

The password they sent me for re-login was much weaker then the one I use which had been changed after their Feb data breach. But it isn't much trouble to change it a safer pass.

I'm imagining this whole thing comes from the VerticalScope data breach...45m passwords stolen from over 1,100 VerticalScope forums

This incident could have been better handled. If the admins had been more forthcoming with information folks may have been more cooperative.

Just got an email that I need to reset my password....

Well that makes sense...since I've been a member of this forum for 66 whole days....

A couple Colts, a couple Brownings, a Makarov, a Sig, a couple Rugers, a couple Kahrs, a couple Smith & Wessons, a Walther, and a couple Berettas .....Oh, and some long guns...

I am on a lot of forums that had this occur yesterday. I just copied and pasted the new password they give ya - then it makes you choose a new one.

They force ya to pick one that is 10 characters with all sorts of damn requirements of symbols, numbers and at least 1 capital letter.

But I had no issues on any forum changing to a new password.

Maybe copy and paste instead of trying to retype it.
