This site has two ways of recognizing members, with email/name insecure authentication and stronger email/password authentication.

Any time you make a new post or click on the "manage my subscriptions" from an email, you are logged into this website insecurely, by using your email and full name only.

This easy and insecure way of logging in is available to let users post easily, without setting a password and also to allow a user to easily manage subscriptions from email newsletters without requiring a complicated password setup process.

Email/name combinations for many people are easy to guess, however, such as John Doe and This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript

We therefore  restrict what can be done with this insecure authentication.

To login securely you will need to relogin using a secret password in addition to your email address.  This password can only be discovered by using the main email address we have on file with your user account.

Instructions login securely and to set or reset your password can be found here.


  1. logout by pressing logout in the top left of the screen next to your name (or press login securely once this is implemented)
  2. Press login in the top left once the page reloads
  3. in the dialog that pops up enter you user name and password*
  4. you will now be logged in securely and can change view and change all your personal profile information including change your email address for newsletters and for your login ID
