I got locked out of various accounts of mine with my other ID because someone is trying to crack the password to them. One of them being my old account here. So I created a new account. When they get a failed cracking attempt it shuts me out of my account for 15 minutes or more for too many failed password attempts. It is sort of like a denial of service attack.
