So all of my reviews say "reviewed by John Cracker" and "Original Score for this review was lost."

The original score thing is because I'm working on the site right now--and have been all day--so that should go away. I just saw the John Cracker thing about 20 minutes ago. Someone obviously had some fun with your account. I have some ideas about more measures I can implement to prevent that sort of childishness in the future, but for now it's likely to continue for a bit until whoever's responsible gets bored or gets caught.

Oh yeah, one of the mods has been having fun with my account for at least a year, switching my password to "you are gay" several times or changing my signature. It's not a very professional image for the site as a whole, but it's never bothered me, personally.

How do we know it's one of the mods? Couldn't it be a hacker or something?

We don't know it's one of the mods, though at the very least it's someone quite familiar with the community. So that leaves either a regular here who has found a security hole and thinks it's better to take advantage of it than let me know where the leak is (I haven't found it yet), or it's a mod who thinks that it's funny to abuse privileges. Either way, it needs to stop.

Speaking of troublemakers, I got an abusive HG Mail from someone named Brochacho.

I have a feeling it might be someone who was once a regular but has since decided to abandon HG for all intents and purposes except to lurk.

..first random guess that comes to mind is if any rewrite rules push a submit to a public file. Something like... if you knew the existing id, and that id is part of a sign-up script, etc..
