Hi Everyone. I see the warning from Tom about a Hacker here. I also addressed the issue of getting emails again when comments or replies are made on my poems. That had been changed a while back and re-started recently. I also wrote to Admin. Today , but it came directly back at me to my email with what appears to be an IP address. Then, I turned off the feature in my settings that allows for contact by email per comments and contacted Admin by email again. The same thing happened? It came directly to me in my email. Does anyone have this happen? Thank you! Heidi

yes, I recently sent two separate emails where it is says "contact us" and my own letter came to my own email. What does it mean? Does it mean they are not even seeing our email? Or is it like just a copy of what we gave them, being sent back to us?? I think what you describe is what happened to me . Not sure though.

That's very strange Heidi, I contacted them about the vile comments and they did respond the same day and quickly removed the comment. I'd left it on because I wanted people to see how easy it was to steal someone's identity. Tom

Update. I did receive a response from them that states they are notifying us again. But...I am still in question about my contact to them coming straight to my email when I send it out.

Yes. I cannot contact them Joseph. It is coming straight back to my email as if I wrote to myself. They need to update us.
