    Do not ever leave your login information anywhere anyone else can access it.

  3. PS - have the people that are going to Porn sites run an anti-virus on their computer and check their browser for virus and bad add ins - sometimes that behavior is done by hijacking browsers

  4. keirartworks, there are definitely no redirects here. I'd definitely have them run an anti-virus scan and also clear out their browser's cookies and cache: http://en.support.wordpress.com/browser-issues/

    auxclass, taken out of context, that's good advice for anyone. ;)
