You have our email addresses so why were not notified via email??? By the way, I was already considering leaving but this might be the last straw. Thanks guys.

    "You have our email addresses so why were we not notified via email???"

    Very good point, I think we deserve more of an explanation.

    If there is not a site policy to cover such eventualities perhaps it would be a good time to implement one now

      While I do understand the desire for more detailed information, we cannot tell you more than we know. Once we learn more of the details of the breach, we'll inform you, but I consider it useless to post hourly updates of "No New Information".

      Also note that while we are taking the situation seriously, this site is still a hobby operation with people having a day job. This implies that we do not have pre-allocated time to handle such situations and not everybody has free time to spend working on the various things that need to be done currently.

        That's not the issue. Read it again. The issue is that this site has everyone's email, so why not notify them there was a password leak? That's very relevant.
        you don't have time to loop around a single email user list that simply says that perlmonks was hacked, please see site for info? I'm perplexed...

    I know we haven't conversed in a long time but I'd still be sad to see you go. I hope you don't.

      Thanks. I am going to wait and see how this whole affair is handled before I decide.
