    I've been locked out of my account, zachnelson for an hour now. Someone is attempting to brute force my account password, I keep getting emails about it.

    Help?

    I'm guessing this has to do with the upsurge in traffic (assume arn will address this). In the meantime, creating another account is not the way to go. Please just wait until this is resolved.

    That IP address listed is a private IP and must be coming from inside yours or MacRumors network. It's not routable over the Internet, so something weird is going on.
