Please Change your password…
Posted by helen on August 20, 2011
It is very annoying that WordPress keeps telling me:
We just discovered an error in one of our tools on WordPress.com that may have affected your password’s security. Please change your password on the persaonal settings page
I have changed the password twice, but I am still getting this message! what kind of joke is this, only wordpress people know, every time after I made change, I’d get another message:
We are terribly sorry about this mistake. No one likes having to create new passwords and we’d like to include a 15% off coupon to say we’re sorry. The coupon can be used for a custom domain, a design upgrade, VideoPress, or a storage space increase. Just use the code below on any of the upgrades on the wordpress store.
so that’s the purpose: promoting its products. so they repeatedly make the same mistake again & again.
Yahoo! also sent me “your account has been compromised…. Please change your password”
as a matter of fact, I dont care if any of my online accounts will be hacked, as none of these accounts contains anything important, all the names addresses telephones birthdays favorite pet’s name.. etc. etc listed in these accounts are not real. the address perhaps is where a Macy’s Store located… :D once Youtube has gone mad, whenever I logged on, it would insist I gave them my Mobile phone number–so in case I forgot my password, they’d send it to my Mobile phone, really? does it make sense? why not sending it to my email address? what if I forgot my password and lost my mobile phone? anyway, to avoid the hassle, I entered a spammer’s mobile phone number –the number was copied from an anti-spam website’s black list. so go ahead, Youtube, you may distribute that number to tele-marketers, let them call each other… and I am always ready to open new account …
I have more than a dozen online blogs… if wordpress doesn’t stop harassing users with such idiotic messages, I’ll move over to bloggers.
