Agreed. The mother ship has likely decreed.It has everything to do with it and that's why we aren't hearing anything else from them.
I think this is the link you are refering to:
It makes a very good case for not making frequent password changes...
I will say that I agree wholeheartedly with the points made in the article.
We will each make the decision whether mandatory and frequent password changes are worth our time and effort to be members of this forum.

It appears that this doesn't affect any recent acquisition by VerticalScope. This was their post on DefensiveCarry.com:Can you confirm if this site was compromised? For the sake of transparency and honesty?
Administrator on DC said:This site has not been affected as that data is dated several months before we came to this site. The breach was a one time hit of a third party plugin that works as an almost separate entity of the site. Their system got hit and data scraped. It is now a legal investigation. The 365 day reset rule can be revisited after the new security system is launched here but at this time it is purely preventative. The articles that keep surfacing don't include that. And since as I said it's now in legal hands we can't discuss anymore details of the ongoing investigation.
Yup...I've received notices from two other forums that are now owned by this outfit, telling me it was time to update my password. I haven't changed them yet, and I am trying to decide if it is worth it, considering how often I visit those forum.Agreed ... and on all counts. Folks will have to make up their own minds as to whether continued participation here warrants the change ... or not.
