I added my email address and immediately got multiple junk messages similar to above in my contributions thread. What the heck? Do I need to remove my email and close my account?

Answered my own question, I just looked and now have some 25 of these in my contributions thread. I am going to remove my email address and close my account. I'll set it up under another ID so I can stay on the site and follow up on this apparent hacking.

yup...gotta read the small print when starting...Pick a readable name, not just a number. Please avoid long user names*, and do not use an e-mail address.

Your account was pseudo-spoofed when you logged in. You can salvage your account by just logging out, closing your browser, and then changing your password when you log in in a new browser window.

This actually happens on this site more frequently than most users would think. Intuit has been aware of the problem for two or three years now. I don't see a solution coming other than what I described above.

Okay, good to know its as simple as that. Thanks Kevin for the quick feedback, I appreciate it.

Pink Pearl - I never used an email address for my login. I don't know how you came to that conclusion.
