Not sure where to put this, but Chrome just informed me that my password here has been breached.

Posting pictures is such a PIA that you'll just need to take my word for it.

I use Chrome and haven't gotten that notification. As long as you don't use your forum password as a banking password, you'll not have any issues.

Posting pictures here couldn't really get much easier... Every Windows user should have the Snipping Tool in their taskbar. (you have to put it there, it's in your "Windows Accessories" See below - you can select any portion of the screen, scribble all over it and save it. Then use the Upload Attachment button, and voila!

This site doesn’t use TLS, so your password is in the clear when you submit it. If you’ve ever posted on badweb from a Starbucks, someone could have sniffed your password. My badweb password is only used at badweb.

It's not the snipping of the pictures, it's the linking.

The Rise of the Bifurcated Thread...

imagelink lets you re-post 99% of what you can find on the web without ever downloading or snipping.

However I've found that snipping or downloading then posting directly to the site adds to the longevity of posts... so that we don't get long involved mechanical threads with dead links to pictures that have been taken down.

Passwords should be strong. Forum passwords can be weak, because well, who really cares if somebody gets my BadWeb password... I can just change it if there's some funny business

If it is important, I go no less than 16 assorted characters in the upper and lower.

I like to pick something that means something only to me, then convert it to hexadecimal.
