yes, they hacked a moderators password...we on the moderation end are attempting to slow it down, but IB needs to do something to stop it...

It's probably that dude that got banned. Hopefully he doesn't have reddit army support.

Hi guys,

We're currently locking it down and investigating how he was able to access accounts. The current theory is that passwords were pulled from a leak database. We encourage everyone to change their passwords immediately, even if you don't use your RC Tech password on other sites. We have no reason to believe our database was leaked, but want to be on the safe side. Thank you.
