It seems someone is using my account to post comments, there were 2 comments that I didn't do myself, one today on the China Airlines article. I have already changed my password so hopefully that will be able to rectify the problem. I just wanted to let you guys know of the situation.

This happened to me a few weeks ago, I made a comment that was attributed to someone else. Can't remember what article it was in regard to. I mentioned it to David with comments like yours and was advised I hadn't been hacked, it was just that the comments were attributed to someone else and it would be investigated.

Hi Andy H
This seems to be my account. When I post a comment (like yesterday China Airlines) it came up as if you had posted it. It is really weird. I thought you were hacking me but I don't know what is happening. It has happened quite a few times.
Thanks Oskar

Same here, this comment is still under someone else's account.

Thanks for flagging this, everybody, and apologies in advance – this has been a recurring issue and we're trying to get to the bottom of it. We thought we had it sorted last time, but clearly not... :(

A bit like a game of guess who?

Hi David, I have noticed somebody else making posts with the same handle as me. Is this related to the problem above, or is it simply that the site does not prevent duplication of handles?

Hi PK, 

Can you point me to which comments in your history were not made by you? We'd like to investigate further. 

Thanks for your assistance.

Thanks Rahul. The comment attributed to me in the recent article by Chris on the new MAS First Lounge was not made by me.
