5. 1-2 months later, everyone get a notice to change their password due to a breach of info.

I am simply pointing out to be careful with your user info and take note of the pattern. This is a great forum and anything online has issues from time to time.
Sure, but there is a security certificate. It just doesn't include the SAN for e90post.com.

If someone managed to gain access to the servers hosting this site, and wanted to leach all the password/PII data from it, they wouldn't need weeks to do it, and they could certainly do it without slowing down the site.

Theres no need to spread FUD on what amounts to (probably) a simple capacity issue.

you should always be careful with your personal information. Theres plenty of information (both right and wrong) about how to safeguard yourself. Probably the biggest lesson everyone learns too late is, never use the same password twice.
