    I've had three emails now so far today with the following message:

    "Dear bluntknife,

    Your account on Web Design Forums.net has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 70.86.138.114

    Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below: http://www.webdesignforums.net/login.php?do=lostpw

    All the best,
    Web Design Forums.net"
    Filburt, do you think you could look into this and see if there's a user with that IP and a similar name or anything? It's certainly not me!

    Oops, have just seen the announcement...

    However, it still seems to be going on... that mail was a few minutes ago.

    Apologies for not seeing the announcement! Must be going blind...

    I have banned that IP too. Keep providing IP address if you still get the e-mails.
