my intention was NOT to cause panic here. just to cause awareness. and yes it is possible to hack through a chatroom. as i stated i sent a msg to the sys/admin so they may do what is necessary to make this site safer. i am not being accusatory to anyone personally, so please take my post the way it was intended. i just found it infuriating and KNOWING where it came from. had to vent my concerns. warm regards. and please accept my apologies if i acted rashly.
