Second, I'm aware this is on Synth. Guess what though. He's been online between the last time and this time.

Lastly. If you think it affects me... HAHAHAH. This isn't a notice for my own ego-stroking. It's to hopefully notify any amount of the other 1.9 million users to change their passwords... AGAIN.

At this point... No offense to the admin team. I have to do the right thing and report the data abuse to the hosting service, domain registrar, and ICANN. It's clear that the flaws here will not be corrected... let alone GDPR and other new legislation being adhered to.

Wow... hacker boy gonna run a `whois` lookup

Fun fact, even if you do whois via ICANN, all you get back is the contact info for the "Whois Privacy Protection Service, Inc." so yeah.

Fun fact, Synth used to work at an ISP and hosted the FFR hardware in extra DC space he had available. If you complain to the ISP enough Synth may even come post how much he doesn't care!

Compared to the site going down for what felt like years, yeah.

The password I use on here is old af and I don't even know if my AOL email exists anymore so I think I'm probably good. Sucks it happened

(Please note if I start trying to sell lotto tickets or Russian Whores then that means I was not good)

Yeah this account is still linked to my hotmail which I've been locked out of for at least 5 years, if not even longer. And already tried to recover and they told me no so it's just a goner anyway

If any of the hackers successfully got back into my hotmail wanna help a girl out and send some of those old cringey emails I wanna take a trip down memory lane

Re: FFR Hacked again... Yes again... 2019
 
i just changed my e-mail 'cause i didn't have access to my old one either

bless

tempted to do a funnyfact @@@@shadowgod but that ain't forum appropriate

the hackers should pull a me in twg 187 and change the forum rules one word at a time

Finally read all of the thread and ho boy this is a treat.

I will play devil's advocate and say I get the anger that OP is feeling---I actually kind of have a bone to pick with Synth for ghosting on the site so long despite us being cool the last we messaged (like years and years ago)...

...but man, you gotta give it to Synth because it's clear he would just rather delete the site and never look back. Instead he got it running, tossed the keys to Velocity and told us to have fun for as long as the ship holds. It would be awesome if when members signed up it explicit said that nothing here is secured so there wasn't any illusions to the contrary but even then you're browser probably says it above this page right now.

So yeah, I feel ya OP but FFR never asks my banking/credit card info and chances are all of our emails and usernames have been sold and sold again before now anyway.

仕方がない

he has produced reasonable complaints but has been behaving in a negative, condescending way towards site admin that arent at fault

hence the dunking

Pretty much if you see that in your browser and can't put two and two together, you're kinda asking for it

Edit: Also for clarification my earlier coldplay joke is directed at the OP and not the mods in case someone can't figure that out.

Oh thank god, I totally thought it was directed at me, the reader.

This pretty much. Certain data-sensitive services will give you a user agreement about data use/security but most websites make no guarantees, implied or otherwise, about data safety

use at your own risk

Oh good then, me taking the time to save your poor, fragile, self image, that's probably wrong anyways, was well worth it.

Yeah this is pretty much the issue. I mean, he contacted me privately, I gave him very clear and truthful answers about the issues at hand, and he decided to cherry pick some portions of the messages as "excuses" we were giving to just not fix things he was sure were trivial to fix.

There's ways to handle this kind of thing. And I think one thing people should think about when leveling criticism or offering random solutions to the problem, is that a bunch of us have been here for a very long time. I was here when Synth was actually active. I've been in skype calls with him. I've been here through what, four now? instances of him coming back, promising to be active and then vanishing again?

There's nothing you're going to suggest to "fix the site" that hasn't come up in our staff discussions at least a half dozen times, both from the internal "What can we do on the backend" front and the external "Could we actually just hijack the website" front.

And not just random suggestions that we could do stuff like that, serious discussions involving conversations with lawyers, analysis of potential server costs in multiple countries, methods of addressing music rights issues. This is not something we're just NOT thinking about.
