@kuanlin Well, mastodon.social registrations have been closed since Oct 31. As I said, passwords are not stored in plain text, that’s a verifiable fact. The original misinformation suggested that mastodon.social might be compromised (it’s not), but this person has signed up somewhere else. I don’t know if y’all have malware on your computers or this is just made up for attention. I’ve been running my server for 4 years and nobody has ever reported such an issue.
Actually, on that topic: @Gargron, do you think there might be someone from the admin team who speaks the language(s) local to the original poster who might be able to reach out and try to get to the bottom of things, as a demonstration of transparency and community support?
As well as the original post showing they apparently signed up on mastodon.online:
@maperal The Tweet sure sounds like it, yes. However, I'm not sure if they're not just confusing Fediverse handles with email addresses
