Reddit hack

Last week I got email from Reddit saying thousands of accounts had been compromised, my own amongst them, and asking me to change my credentials.

When I went to the Reddit site I found that my account has been banned. I assume that whomever used my credentials had posted entries contravening the terms of service of the site.

I used Reddit’s contact form to explain my dilemma, and asked that they reinstate my access and remove all the postings ever made in my name. So far, no response.

At this point, I can only assume that I look like an ass on Reddit. I ask again that they simply remove my account and any postings associated with it. Come on, spez, take care of this.

UPDATE: my bad. They asked that I reset my password; I did and all seems well. I should read the instructions a bit more closely.
