    Due to snooping people, someone's stuff might have disappeared. It should be possible to restore it.

    Is "accidentally the user" a reference to a specific user somehow or does it mean something else? :? I am confuzzled

    Someone's account was compromised and unfriendly parties may be looking through his shit.

    They weren't disabled, but everything was broken. And I'm gonna edit a couple of posts because the point of being ambiguous was to be ambiguous because of snooping.

    This is all in potentia at the moment.

    It is important that people be able to protect and manage their own privacy. When it comes to light that information may be compromised and the person whose privacy is potentially being violated can't be around to manage the situation themself, temporary measures can be taken to protect their privacy on their behalf until they are able to come back and make those decisions themself.

    Wow, this sounds unfortunate, albeit, I thought everything on Kintsugi was already public? Anyway, I hope that [people?] are okay after [whatever happened?]?

    Edit: Oh right I see

    It's not expected to be super-secret, but if I have reason to suspect specific targeted snooping in a circumstance that I think might endanger somebody, I will occasionally Suddenly Do Things.

    Just to check, this isn't something that I should worry about happening to me, right?

    No. This is not a forum vulnerability.

    i hope anyone affected is okay? (and by not a forum vulnerability, that means no reason for personal anxiety?)

    There is no reason for anxiety. This is specific to this particular user.

    Anyone affected is okay, we'll handle any fallout.

    So I got curious and decided to try running the "restore" from a previous "uh-oh creeper showed up" event, and the answer is, THAT TAKES A REALLY LONG TIME. But now we know.

    just to clarify, if you were the specific user affected by the thing, you would know about it, right?
