You have been blocked for an (utterly useless) attempt to compromise my password. In the last hour, I have received 2 requests for a new password via "lost/forgot my password" stuff, and both requests for a temporary password came from this account. I can e-mail said requests out. Until/unless the person behind this IP answers this, I believe they should be blocked for trying to compromise the security of my account. In the meantime, I've gotta take some time off from this site, so whatever the community-at-large decides about this will be fine for me. Punky Your mental puke relief 22:51, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Both came from this IP? Hm, there's supposed to be a 24 hour waiting time between two attempts from the same IP. -- Nx / talk 23:04, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Never mind, the limit is actually per account for which you are requesting a new password, not per IP requesting a new password. -- Nx / talk 23:09, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
They password requested my regular Gooniepunk account, as well as my FrankThePseudoscientist and Conservative Punk accounts, so that might explain things for you, Nx. Gooniepunk2010 Oi! Oi! Oi! 23:33, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
This user did the same to me and besides for getting an email I don't particularly want, I don't see any real harm. That said, I don't think there is any harm in banning this one IP either. Keegscee (talk) 22:53, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
I. too received the aforementioned e-mail. P-Foster (talk) 22:56, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

This is an IP from Hide My Ass. Since you asked. (talk) 13:48, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify them. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
