And, by the way, having to watch the progressive or pharmaceutical commercial to get the code to prove I'm not a bot is enough to drive me away.
The captcha system is random generated. Sometimes it's vid ads, some times just pictures, some times just words.

I am one of the lucky ones

I was able to salvage my stuff because I had not changed email addy. It seems like a common curtiousiy to the members here to give them some help in recovering their lost stuff. This group of people who have been operating this forum make their living off of people like us. It would seem that decentsiy would make them want to help our members who have had all the trouble caused by a laps of the trust the we as members have placed in you. You have let us down big time and it should be your mission to help us, even though you caused this problem by you laps of safeguard, you are now making it impossible for members here to regain their lost material. Shame on you, if we stay it will be up to you and your effort to help the members. I am sure that you dumped this load of crap on other forums as well but your efforts should be to help not make it harder for us to stay around.

I'll take that as a "Yes, it occurred in February but we didn't know about it until June".
