Welcome to DU, rawhideal!

I notice there are a couple of emails that start with the word "spoof". Is that a general email configuration for these kinds of things?

Sorry about that. I tried to post in all the main forums that got the most traffic.

Didn't mean to duplicate.

I just thought it was awfully fishy, time-wise, or should that be phishy? Because A) I'd re-upped my star with a PayPal payment, B) I've never gotten that kind of email about my PayPal account before, C) the timing was just too close to have been a mere coincidence, and D) I thought if it happened to me, it might also happen to other DUers.

Well, I never got one of those re: PayPal, til this morning.

Timing just smelled really fishy.

All I'll add is the following:

It is UTTER FOLLY to think what we need to do is "try to get along."

There's such a thing as being cooperative or "nice." But it's quite another to be UNWITTINGLY SUICIDAL. From the article:

There are consequences to one party being more aggressive about defying governing norms. If liberal legislation canít break a Republican filibuster, but Democrats donít offer the same resistance, the playing field is tilted to conservative policy. If Republicans use any maneuver to get appointees in place, and Democrats donít, conservatives become more likely to be ensconced at executive agencies. If Republicans are willing to blackmail the government and Democrats arenít, they get more concessions from that blackmail. If Republicans use gerrymandering and voter suppression and every available tool more sharply than Democrats, we get conservative government even if we vote for a liberal one.

Democrats, in short, bring a butter knife to a gunfight. They may be correct on the merits that institutional norms allow the government to function properly. But as long as Republicans donít care about such niceties, that respect is equivalent to surrender.

I'm posting this here, too.

calimary here. I do not know if this IS part of the results of that hacking, BUT:

I got an email this morning that alerted me that my PayPal account has been limited. It started asking for all the usual information of the kind you do NOT want to have hackers and other nogoodniks to have.

I became alarmed and called the PayPal people on our landline, according to the phone # on my monthly statement.

They looked into things and confirmed, yup, that email is from nogoodniks.

The reason I became alarmed and suspected a link to DU was because, immediately before Election Day, we were all advised that only star members could interact all day.

Of course, all day on Election Day, we were hobbled and silenced by hackers.

The day before, I decided to make sure my star membership was maintained, and made a small payment ... via PayPal.

PLEASE BE ON THE ALERT. I don't know if this has anything to do with the hacking, but it sure is suspicious, time-wise.
