    No-one is to stone anyone, even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say "carburetor"

    If someone tries to log into your account 5 times unsucessfully then it locks, so I'm assuming the OP had a locked account and is thinking it was a hacker

    Mentioned off of the forum: "DMC talk sent me a notice that someone entered the incorrect password 5 times yesterday, I have not been on DMC talk in weeks."

    I don't believe it locked him out though...

    However, as he hasn't been back here since he posted, then maybe he has been blocked ????

    I won't say that he hasn't been, but he didn't mention it.

    Yes DMC Talk sent me a message saying that there were 5 attempts to access my account with an incorrect password.
    I may have been locked out after that ... but by the time I had read the email all appeared to be re-set.

    Yes Alexakos... maybe someone thought I was a Hooters gal. They could not be more wrong.
