Today I received an email that looked very official from (that's me!) that informed me that a request to change my password had been received.

I think it's phishing. My ability to log in as the admin indicates that the number of attempts to log in has been exceeded.

I'm posting this as a reminder to everybody to be very cautious when dealing with any unsolicited emails with innocent looking links in them.

As webmaster, I am not sending out notices to people to change their passwords. If you receive an email similar to what I just received, I suggest you contact me directly at so that we can get any issues sorted out. I'll attach an image of the email below.

Thanks for the info - will be on the lookout from now on. So far all the messages I have received have been legit and hope it stays that way.
