I noticed that when I sign in, the login is sent through HTTP instead of HTTPS. So I wanted to ask: has that ever actually been a problem for anyone on this board? Not on other sites, just this one.

The closest I'm aware of is that some people have left their accounts online and had other people leave messages in their name from their computer. That has happened both on accident (with two posters sharing the same computer and forgetting to log off during handoff), and on purpose (with a poster lending their account to another person for a guest post).

Roy claimed it happened to him several years ago (and threatened to do a back trace), but nothing was ever proven. As far as I know, he didn't respond to fbmf's request for more info, and not surprisingly, it didn't go anywhere.

It should also be noted this accusation was made during one of Roy's more trollier periods.

Edit: I guess he accused PR of hacking his email account, not TGD account:

Various people: You're totally in the wrong for expecting people to act decently!

Backtrace, bitch. Suck it.
