    I just had a plugin database discrepenacy where I needed to get a new password cause well I lost it :). So I did the normal lost password stuff. And then I thought if anybody knew my email and my login name (or that matter any user) they could access my account as an admin. This is not good.

    Is there a plugin out there that would require a secret word to be entered prior to retrieving a password?

    Or am I just worrying over nothing?

    No, because they still need to access your e-mail account to retrieve the sent password, correct?

    Cause I am a damn fool. I think these are one of those blunders in life that are quite memorable.

    Like looking at a girl and accidentally walking into the glass door (two days ago), or

    locking my keys in the car with the engine running, but having my stereo face plate in my hands (a month ago), or

    or talking dirty over the phone to your girlfriend to only realize that you accidentally called your mother.

    Please bump this post. LOL.

    However, I do dislike that anyone can change your password if they know your username and e-mail, so I've used an e-mail no ones knows about.
