Maybe one year ago, Nandu was in Istanbul for holiday and we met face-to-face.
We sat in a coffeehouse and talked for a while. That was nice :)

Something weird happened today when I was entering a post. There were two words in my post that appeared in the submitted text with elements I definitely did not place there and would never have intended. The words were "student" and "complete".

When I clicked on preview, the words were like all the others, but in the post, they were blue and underlined. When I ran the cursor over the word, a pop-up advertisement appeared. There were two ads that were suddenly part of my post.

I changed the words until the ads disappeared from my post, and I assume that the ads were the result of some kind of aggressive, intrusive viral trojan worm junk.

I've been using this computer for a long time now, and though I periodically have it "cleaned", there is always something new and awful lurking online.

Has anyone else had this experience, and is there something else I can do to make it not happen?

Tx.

P.S. The same words did not produce the effect this time.....perhaps because of the quotation marks? I'll test again.

student complete

See it? It happened again.

Hey Carmela. The words looked normal on my computer so it might be time for a security diagnostic scan along with a cleaning, or whatever other tasks you think might resolve this. ( If you are using windows you might try applying a " system restore " application that resides in your operating systems accessories tool kit. That has helped me numerous times when picking up unwanted visitors from my web travels. Basically go through automatic menus and reboot. ) It may just be a simple fix. Good luck with this.

Cheers :)

Thanks for the tip, James. It does not appear on other devices.

I'm in the process of changing my email address, and I would like to change the address that I used to register at this website. I consulted the FAQ page and could not locate an answer.

What do I do now?

Thanks.

That's the first thing I did, and tried it many times. Apparently, the profile page does not affect the original registration data.

As Andreas said, Carmela, on the Profile page type in your new email address, then be sure to re-enter your password as indicated in that top section, too, before you hit Submit. That should take care of it for you. Let us know how it goes.

Well, first I tried it and I got booted out of the forum altogether.

Then, I got this nice email that said "click here to reactivate your account".

I clicked, and here I am again, making trouble as usual, happy as a pig in a poke.

Ha!

But were you able to register your new email address?

I've entered the new email address repeatedly, and when I checked my profile, the old address was gone. Now it says CarmelaBear where the old addy was.

If you had not asked, I would not have thought to check.

Folks can always send a private message.....until the webmaster comes to the rescue of the damsel in distress.
