    sorry i was just in a hurry to write it up.

    Just wanted to warn that bugmenot might have your user name and pw stored on a site u go to. I found mine on there cause choas told me. Luckly the pw is wrong but still i think its bull that they do that.

    Ok, I've been to the site and basically it's a site that lists user name and passwords for other site's that require registration. Saves people from signing up with their own details.

    Of course YOUR registration isn't going to be on there :rolleyes: use some common sense, they're not going to know your password, it's run from public submissions so any name can be added. It's just a load of rubbish, and didn't need to be posted about.

    The site is a sort-of a good idea, but for forums it's pretty worthless, I mean if a particular user-name starts causing trouble or acting odd (because multiple people are using it) the site owners will likely deal with it and if need be, ban the account.

    Not to mention that the site is ran off anonymous submissions and is therefore open to fake accounts being added etc:

    ahem :p

    I've used this extension for a few weeks now and I find it quite useful when using sites I don't want to have to register to do something. Saves me time and spam.

    It really doesn't take more than a minute to sign up for a forum account. Wonder what the big problem is. :p

    lazyness but it takes just as much time to go to the site type in the sites name in the thingy find copy the user and pw paste it in to the site u want and sign in. Plus if u register u can always have that name and not always go back to bugmenot and get a name and pw.

    I don't think it's main use is for forums, as I said, usernames will usually be banned if it were used for posting content. More likely it's for just sites that require a login to simply view content.
