Well, that was all very succinct and to the point !

Forgive my ignorance but who or what is "Brad's Crows Nest" ?

I left for a number of reasons, but the final straw was that it crashed regularly and had no security of our data, previous posts etc

I see that during April Crowsnest forum website had been hacked and was seriously affected, that the site and its content had been so badly damaged, it would be closed down.

I can not understand why someome would want to hack a cruise forum site
I hope we do not end up the same way, hopefully, our site may have better protection?

because if its security systems are as low as when I left, the hackers can syphon off/harvest all kinds of useful info on the members

As I understand it the forum was held to ransom with demands for money to be paid over in order to continue. Understandably this was not acceptable so the new one was set up.

But .… even if we were hacked what does the Hacker actually get ?

From me a one off Userid ( plus the password for same ) together with an email ID that I can change.

As for content … anybody can read it and has been able to do so since it was posted.

You mean I'm the only one who was asked for credit card details before David would let me join?
