The key thing to remember here is that Acrio isn't some maniacal supervillain, or fascist dictator.  He is merely a troll who wants to get some attention.  There was no skill or talent involved in his shenanigans; he was merely in a position where he could take advantage of the trust of many who, even after his repeated attacks on the integrity of the Mobius Forum, still gave him more chances.  He had people who enabled him.  Without them, he wouldn't have had enough influence or power to do anything.

Look at the contributions Acrio made to the forum over the last several years, and you will find very little that he himself actually created.  No great works of art or writing, very little in the way of programming, and in general no really pertinent or important posts.  And in the end, he has ensured that no one who knows who he is will trust him.  He has punished himself; yes, he's disrupted the forum, but he cannot stop us from building again, from regrouping.

He's just a troll.  There is nothing more to fear as long as good people stand up and do not allow their trust to be abused again.

And, what Sam said.  It is supremely debatable whether Acrio was sane to begin with.  There are many good people on the staff who, even when given full power and control on Yuku, used their powers only as necessary and just.

I'd change any passwords that you may have used at the board, though, if you have used them anywhere else.  Just a word to those who may not have been wise in selecting a password for the board in the first place.

I'm starting to get too used to changing every password every month or so.

If the man is a mere troll, and not a supervillain *indicates self somewhat* then it shouldn't be a threat, pending whether or not the passwords were hashed, transmitted over SSL, etc.  As an admin, he actually doesn't have access to your password in clear text.  That information is (supposed to be) contained on a bastion host within your hosting service.  And if it's not, then look at Sony as an example of what can happen if somebody with some form of knowledge and talent starts to play around.  From what I'm understanding of this fellow, you've little to worry about.  Also, anywhere applicable I'd recommend using SSL, (or use a VPN, or Secure Shell, anything you've got that'll encrypt your push).

That's my white hat, presentation.  For those more interested in the black hat presentation feel free to PM me.

You should've seen the waaaaaaaahbulance he tried to drive into me in PM this morning (ask me if you're interested, since he's still got access to the MobiusForum account and that means I doubt my posting them and the reply publicly in MFC'll stay there). It was embarrassing.

Trudi here.

I saw all this coming for about the same amount of time as Terg did but since I don't have much in the way of backbone I never said anything. Just never emigrated across :) Honestly this isn't coming as much of a suprise. I guess it doesn't have much to do with me really since I've already bowed out but I do like the MF community so it is annoying to see it get massacred like this.

I have tea you guys. Delicious, soothing tea :) Also some coffee I guess
