4. Does this have something to do with

that curiously ominous post this morning from a new DUer? Since removed, it was entitled "Nice forum you got here".

This person registered yesterday, has/had 50 some posts since and appeared to be examining DU for vulnerabilities. They seemed to be knowledgeable, wrote intelligently and apparently was able to log another poster out after being challenged. Shades of election day 2016.

If legit, I don't know why they didn't take their concerns directly to the administrators rather than post publically in The Lounge. That was weird.

As it stands, this whole episode was somewhat unnerving and a hat tip to all of you who do the nuts and bolts stuff behind the scenes.
