I read a post on another blog that claimed some 70,000 WordPress accounts had been seized by the government. So I checked to see if it affected me, which at first it appeared to have done.
I found myself unable to post a new message or log in. In retrospect though, I think they changed my password without telling me, although a few months ago I asked them to remember my password always. Anyway, I could still change my password, so I did.
