When this was really rampant a year and a half ago many people including myself would get over a thousand. It freaked out a lot of people until it was explained as being harmless harassment.
For you new folks, here is an explanation from Blogging 101 for Newbies.
There are a couple of relatively harmless forms of cyber terrorism that can be encountered on AMD. One is getting numerous password requests in your private email and the other is having the number of views of your blog skyrocket to ridiculous levels. How the perpetrator accomplishes these is the same.
It is important to note that there is no effort being put forth to hack your personal email. It is just a nuisance with somebody pranking you.
Using Explorer as the browser, the culprit can go into the AMD log in page with automatic log in turned off. Then with the auto refresh feature turned on in Explorer to refresh every few seconds, the perp. enters your screen name and clicks the lost password button. This results in multiple password responses, often hundreds, being sent to your personal email. This same method works for running up blog page views also. This usually happens overnight as the creep sets it all up before going to bed to happen while sleeping before turning it off in the morning.
The solution is simple, just mark the messages in your email as spam. Then they will go into the spam folder and often can be disposed of in a single click.
