    I’m really pissed off that you included my user name and password in the New WordPress.com User email. Everyone in tech knows that hackers search the Internet for this information and then try them in popular sites like eBay and Amazon. My eBay account was used within an hour of some dumb site sending me such an email last year. NEVER send anyone’s password and user name in the same email.

    I’m stunned at your ignorance.

    “You” being the WordPress.com team that signed the email.

    jmpreston, you should never use the same password on more than one web site.

    You can change your password here:

    http://wordpress.com/profile/

    It won’t be sent in email.

    If your emails are somehow ending up on public web sites, nothing we could do would help. Secure your email.

    Well unless someone has hacked into your email account then you’re safe. If you have been hacked use a different email address
