User:Patient X

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

This is a bugmenot account. =)

Please see the discussion in http://kb.mozillazine.org/Knowledge_Base_changes about your sharing your username/password. However, since this account is shared if I find anybody has been abusing it (posting spam, vandalism etc.) I will immediately block it rather than issuing a warning etc. Tanstaafl 22:37, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

The rules have been changed to explicitly prohibit publicly sharing an accounts username/password. Nobody needs an account to view the articles, and we do not want to allow anonymous editing. We can not issue a warning or resolve a dispute when we don't know who actually edited an article. It also creates a record of contributions that are falsely attributed to a single person, who might gain credibility so that each of "his" succeeding edits might get less scrutiny than edits by unfamiliar editors.

Since you've published your username/password using BugMeNot I'm going to block this account. Please apply for a new one. I thought about changing your password and sending the real Patient X a email with the new password instead (so that you could keep your old username) but none of the special pages appear to let me do that.
