(Problem) One of my posts was edited without my permission.

No, I said that none was. Which itself is abnormal, and suggests that a) it was an admin and not a "mere" moderator and b) whoever it was does not want to be held accountable for these edits, and so has in these instances suppressed the mechanism that normally alerts people that an edited post was edited and who by.

The hiding of the identity of the perpetrator of the phantom edits is a very strong indication that whoever it is is acting in bad faith. This is the main reason why I suspect an outside hack -- who here would act in bad faith like this?

I guess we are fortunate that the perp seems more interested in pranking us than in ransoming us, using us to spread malware to others, or engaging in wanton destruction.

Caleidoscope:
I do hope we have good regular backups. If you are right and this is some harass from a perp it still means that someone got access to our site and is able to change things. And that would be horrible. It feels like someone burgled your home.  It is getting more and more difficult these days to keep your own place safe on the net, in and outside for the members as well as for the content.

Well it does give the feeling of have to be more careful again, even with urls  posted here, and getting back to the old copy paste safety. This was the only site I trusted with url's in the email messages. Back to zero.  :(
