Did WoT just leak my password?

As well as the whole database and cover it up with vague excuses/explanations?

Where did this accusation come from? Please share your evidence for this happening with the class.

The whole passwords database was reset!
Did you miss the official announcement above the login fields before you clicked "Forgot my password"?

Perhaps I did. I can't be here 24/7. So the database was reset. Do you know that there was a leak?

Do you have another vague explanation? Give me one solid reason.
I might fall asleep right now. Sorry if I do. Will continue later in that case.

You cannot just repeat a bunch of conspiratorial talk and accuse us of "vague explanations." Databases can have all kinds of things happen to them such as errors. That doesn't justify going grassy knoll on us.

I am going to ask you one last time: Show us something something solid before people begin to tune you out.

Vague excuses. WoT is here since 2006. There was plenty of time to make this *obvious* change much earlier.
And why everyone? Why not only those who did actually have "123" passwords.
Also why mandatory? Not like it's going to save accounts that are long dead and/or already brute-forced.

You might say: "because they are stored as hashes".
Still it's so late. And they only realized it now? HOW if they are stored as hashes?
How could they know the passwords suck?


Alright. I guess there's no sense in asking the question I started this thread with.
Not like administration is going to descend to me and admit me they've been DDoS'd to oblivion.
And considering toxicity of this community based on previous forum experience I'm just going to say I'm done with this thread.
Color my curiosity satiated.

Have a good one.

Since you have convinced yourself that we are all a bunch of toxic data leakers with vague explanations it must be sheer pain and agony being here. At any time you wish to use it there is the door.

Have a nice day now.

You're making it personal, are you?
Keep in mind I limited it to "previous" experience when talking about toxic community.
But now you are making me regret making that limitation.
You obviously had nothing to answer all the question from my last message with.
Felt bad and decided to pull a RUSSIAN REVERSAL* on me, like anybody cares...

*as in a wrestling move I just made up, not a well-known joke concept

(And you still didn't answer any of those questions)
(Still didn't)
(Still)
