Yeah, I think the biggest risk is to people that tend to use the same details across sites, if the hashing used was outdated, and could expose their usual combination. I've known some quite senior people who are simply so stressed in terms of mental bandwidth, that they make those kinds of errors, and get "hacked".

With some ISPs, mail from RPGWatch tends to end up in spam folders apparently. Especially Gmail is known to do this. It is kind of hard to respond to people complaining about not having received an e-mail, when they do not check their spam folder, as my response ends up there as well.

If you can't recall having ever received an e-mail from RPGWatch because of a PM you have received, the mails probably ended up in your spam folder.
