Post Don't give your password out
Well, I'll just say this one more time. DON'T GIVE YOUR PASSWORD OUT!

I will reset your account for you if you can prove you're the rightful owner, which is not always the case, but I will not just blithely refund all the items stolen. We would get item inflation that way and all of a sudden there would be a lot more accounts magically "stolen".

Don't give your password out or you will likely suffer the consequences. In addition to losing items and ships you are also leaving your personal information in the billing system wide open. It's not a joke. You can open yourself up to identity theft and all sorts of real life scams.

We've said this so many times I am frankly shocked how anyone can expect sympathy after doing this and losing everything.

And if you've already given it out, then change it.

If you want to sell subscriptions for cash or credits, the best way is for the person getting the sub to log in on the web page, go to "pay by pay pal" and save that page then email it to the person paying the sub. That person can then load that page into his browser and click on the Pay Pal subscription link and pay for it. That way no one gets anyone else's password.
