Journal inquisitor's Journal: Hmm... weird password stuff.

Anyone else received any password change notifications lately? I've just got two from a Hungarian IP, [62.77.228.49]. Probably an open proxy, so...

Either some wannabe-l33t idiot doesn't realise that Slashdot pw-change notifications go to the user's set email account rather than one they set, or they're just trying to annoy me... Or there's something weirder going on.

Whatever it is, I don't like it... For a start, why would anyone be interested in my Slashdot account? It's only a 5-digit UID, and a high one at that. And I'm not a subscriber. So why me?
