Hi Forumfloss/Wendel/Mark,

Your forum password is not stored in plain text. You received a new
password because it was reset. It was reset because you signed up for a
second account and rather than delete your original (which used a
disposable email address) I merged the two.

As is our policy. you really shouldn't have been accepted with a
disposable address at all - and now I've looked again it appears
recursor.net is also a disposable address.

If you could update your forum details with a non-disposable address
that would be great.
