in reply to Weird anomaly in brian_d_foy experience points
I haven't really bothered to log in to Perlmonks since the password database was published. I think I changed my password, but either I can't remember it or it isn't what I think it should be. I don't get the email for the password reminder. The one in my keychain doesn't seem to work anymore.
As for any worries about my well being, it is the weekend you know. Some of us don't actually use the interwebs all day every day, and someone finally managed to figure out someone like me has a well known and easy to find email address (although googling seemed a bit extreme).
I'm not speculating on what happened, why it happened, and so on, but I didn't do anything on purpose to reduce my XP. I'm not terribly concerned about it either unless there's some new way to turn in-game money into real money. :)
