For punishing, not preventing. Except asking asking players to not give out their passwords there's nothing the site has done to prevent people from losing control of their account, or minimize the damage done when that happens. This is not something you can address by issuing a punishment to the victim.

People don't get hacked, they either do it themselves or give out their password to someone they shouldn't.

Like clan members and friends? I can guarantee you that the players who get fucked up like this didn't throw out their password to people they didn't trust. It just turned out that one of them was an asshole. The site does nothing to minimize damage in these situation, a cap limit for active/waiting speedgames would be one way to at least do something..

First, you can't guarantee you know how everyone feels.

Second, since you don't address the fact that I said people aren't getting hacked, I assume you agree. Therefore, the isolated incident of KINGFISHER, is his own fault. Most likely he did it himself and posted on his own wall that he got hacked. In any case, it's not really relevant to the suggestion.

The suggester just wants a limit because he finds multiple games annoying. A better solution, IMO, is to hide multiple games, like is done in the normal game finder. Then, only one will show even though multiples are waiting.

Stop talking about this like it is an "isolated incident", I've heard of countless of people who got messed up like this. Browse through the archived C&A reports if you don't believe me.
"Hacked" in this context means: "To use one's skill in computer programming to gain illegal or unauthorized access to a file or network". So no, we're not talking about hacking, unless there have been cases I'm not aware of where this was done.

Unless chapcrap knows something I don't, I wouldn't be confident that no one has ever guessed another player's password before.

You've heard of countless people? If you have heard of them, you should be able to count them with a rudimentary educational background.

@Mets, I agree that people could be hacked. But, all of the point dumping I have seen has not been because of hacking. And by all, I mean 5-6 cases that I have seen in almost 5 years.

MERGED threads here. Both were wanting to limit the number of speed games someone can have waiting.
