User: LIsLinuxIsSogood
Topic: Pulseaudio Deslexia
Post: post 8145946
Reason: I am not sure why, or how, my account is associated with this situation. The recent posts I am referring to on this site that appear to have been sent using my login name, but were actually a spam bot (that was pointed out by Moderator already in this post... and in this post ) And while it looks like previously the posting from a user by the name of LinensRange786 was using my login to do the spamming, which I don't really know what is the matter with that. However it recently looks like it could be actually stemming from my own user account with my personal login name. Although I could be mistaken, I would appreciate any help in figuring out when and if there are posts that are not stemming from my computer and if need be rebuilding my account on the site.

FYI, feel free to remove this thread, titled "Moving Window with help of keyboard shortcut (SOLVED oops :)"

It does not do any good as part of the forum as it was solved prior to any response being posted, and I would be fine to have it be removed from the forum if it were up to me.

I've looked at this a couple of times, but from the forum front-end side, I can't see any way that the spam was posted by anything other than your account. And since you didn't make the posts, that would imply someone accessing the account with your password, MITM, or who knows what.

Split from the Report thread in case someone is hasn't seen this and can take a look under the hood.
