Verbs and Nouns - your account was deactivated because your email address is dead - so nothing to do with the other problems.
Easy way to solve is send me an email and ask for it to be reactivated (same process as for those affected by the problems). That way I can update your email as well to a valid one.

Try using a quote, preferably a favorite one, and take the first letter of each word with the exclamation or question marks as well. For example, IT Crowd, Have you tried turning it off and on again?. This would be Hyttioaoa? Plus every time you enter it you can have a chuckle if it's that way inclined.

A tip - try and stay logged in and you wont have this problem - may mean a change to your cookies settings.

I found that my browser was expiring cookies on close - after changing this I remain logged in.

The interest in brute forcing seems to be the result of the compromise of the user accounts on Valleywag, a US "scandal" blog on happenings in Silicon Valley. So if you had an account there, you really should change all of your passwords on all other websites.

My account was locked out due to a brute force attempt today.
