    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    These are from the 1970s and 80s and they don't have the word Easter on them

    It's more probable that it's something to do with their ballsed up anti spam measures. They keep changing the codes to try to stop the spammers , which is why we have all those messed up apostrophes , and knowing MSE the code changes have had a knock on effect on the passwords

    im also pretty sure hackers would be more interested in sites where you have to enter real details, like real name, dob and bank details rather then an annoymous forum

    It has no effect on spam as spam accounts are not active for 90 days so only inconveniences genuine users!

    Resetting our passwords every 90 days?
    I'll run out of combinations of my pets names at that rate.
    It's mad, I've had the same log in details for my online banking for a decade and have never been asked to change them, but for a website where people post about bogof tea bags we have to change them ever few months?

    I'm irritated to see that I am the weight I am, though I'm trying.
    Being away, I see other guys eating far more than me, but I'm the one with a belly!
    Still, early days with my healthier diet.

    Well done Colin btw getting under 12 stone.

    Surely if he's sold the website, he's not going to give the new owner money to fix it? That's be like me buying someone's car and asking the seller to pay to fix the clutch 6 years later.

    Who really cares?

    Is someone going to hack and post as me? Good luck to them, they will probably make more sense then me

    It's a throwaway email account, a throwaway password. There are no personal details held about me on their data base. And I'm pretty certain my posts here on how to save a bob or two are classified secrets

    When will people get it in their heads that Martin no longer owns or has any say in the running of this site

    My puter monitor packed up this morning and the one I wanted from agros was out of stock

    I did get another one and it appears to be working ok.
