    It may be "just" a forum but phishing may get them a lot of legit E-Mail and passwords, potentially worth a lot of cash. Not to mention the potential SPAM.

    Nope, but a good chance to give current members the idea that they shouldn't use their email address to login where they've got a (hopefully) unique username. ;)

    They have been coming and going but it looks like it may be on its way out. The only reason it's sporadic is DNS caching which sometimes takes a day or more to wash out of the system.

    OK. That seems to be the case. I just checked "Active Topics" and it's showing the most recent information as of about 10:30 this morining with DGStorm's news post..
