While I am at it, if you have questions, the forum admin email I have listed on my forum profile here works. In fact, it goes right to my phone. If anyone needs help around here fast, that's the best way to ensure I get the message.

In other words, if you are concerned about something, ask or advise me. I'm here, human, and willing to help.

Unless there was a misunderstanding... it's actually pretty difficult to "hack" someones account and steal their password. Unless it's piss-easy, which usually isn't possible even with the most basic of authenticators that are in place for sites when making an account these days... It's doubtful anyone stole your account.

If it's here, I know that hasn't happened. If it's at the PS forums, it's even less likely.

Interesting, I remember making an avatar picture when I first signed up here. Now I have a picture with a word I really dislike.

No offense was intended. When I instituted default profile pictures for new users, I didn't realize that it would change the existing pictures as well. I was unable to recover the pre-existing pictures. There's an announcement about it linked above.

You can change your picture back to anything you wish, and I will not change it again. I do apologize for any discomfort, confusion, or inconvenience caused.
