I have been a mumsnetter for a good few years but took a break after my details were taken in hackergate.
Since hackergate I have moved house and have a new computer. No one else in the house uses mumsnet. This computer has never until christmas been used for looking at mumsnet.
I decided to rejoin mumsnet the other day. I set up a totally new email address and rejoined under a totally new name.
I have logged in 4 or 5 times maybe since I joined. I dont keep myself logged in as its a shared family computer. I have taken care every time to type in the proper web address and checked for the green padlock when I log in but once I navigate away from the login page to chat or active threads or threads i'm on - it asks me to log in again.
Is this a new thing? And am I just being paranoid or is something amiss?
