My Account has been hacked!! What do u do?

I just got back from australia day celebrations and saw the thread 'AO is RACIST' - anyone who knows me on here should be abele to tell that that post is NOT me..

What do you do if someone has hacked your account?

Were they rude or insulting posts? Maybe a mod did that.

If someone went to the trouble of hacking into your account they're not just going to edit your posts.

I just dont understand.. I just changed my password... my password was a pretty easy one to guess..but its been the same for 3.5 years and noone ever has..

Ive just asked the mods what to do.

Im not deleting the post cuz it used to happen in the early days of the board and the Mods back then could trace it by the IP address, so im leaving it there in case they can still do that..

I thought it was weird that you'd start a thread like that! But I didn't think anyone might have hacked your account!

Thanks Sarah - you've been around forever as well, so at least thought it wasny my style..

I first thought that it was Czechfan with a capital, and that mine wasnt with a capital, but when I clicked open the thread my stomach dropped..

Im not apologising for the dumb, fucked up thread cuz I didnt do it!

HELP ME MODERATORS!

It did seem a li'l out of character, but people do strange things when they feel provoked. Ask Juan Ignacio Chela.

To be honest, I thought it was a joke thread posted by the real you Philbo. I hope you get to the bottom of this.

Well, I thought it was strange, too. But you never know, we've seen posters go completely nuts all of a sudden times before.
There were more of "your" comments in the thread that is now deleted.

Really? Thanks for telling me..I dint realise that..

Holy fuck man, I came on here to post about what a great job Alicia did, and lucky I looked at page two!!

I dont give a fuck about rep points, but you should see everyone going nuts at me [email protected]

Its a bit stressful cuz I just have no idea what the fuck happened..

Upset at myself having an easy to guess password, but noone has bothered trying to guess it in 3.5 years, I dunno why they would now....

At first I thought it was a joke too, coz there was something posted in another thread like that one by "Czechfan" too, and so I thought he was making a retaliation thread, but then it kept going and I started to wonder what was up, coz that's really not like Philbo. Hope the mods can find out who did it.
