Account Hacking Attempt!

My account was attacked today. Looks like they failed, but locked the account after 5 attempts. Here's some info on the IP

http://www.projecthoneypot.org/ip_201.234.220.9

Is this just me or are others experiencing this too?

I don't really understand why someone would want to hack anyone's account on this site (except maybe a mod or admin). What are they going to do, ask a question without a license?

OK, but I still don't understand. Seems like a lot of work just for the chance of posting a link or two.

I got the same with the IP 109.73.65.24. stopforumspam.com has a long record with that IP.

Automated spamming software is what results in all the threads about spammers , this system uses existing accounts to beat the anti spam measures we put in place on sites.

Break into a user account you don't need to register and the spam stays unchecked for longer.

I just got an e-mail today that my account has been locked, but I didn't open it. What's that all about?
