    Following the log-in shenanigans, decided to clear what personal info I could from my profile.

    Clearing birthday I chose the -- option from the drop down, it cleared my date of birth but set it to 30 November 1999.

    Is this info used for, or likely to be used for password resetting in the future?

    Too late, I'm in your profile hacking your DoB for the million dollars I've been promised.

    It just means you'll be getting a lot of PMs from user Armoured_Bear in the near future.

    Do people actually use their real b'day online? Wow!

    I don't. That's why I was shocked to see it there.

    Plus some of us registered here yonks before identity theft was a thing.

    It's quite literally the end of the world.

    I'm hunkering down in expectation.

    Good question - that's what my (fake) DoB is at too!
