I mean besides the usual "MySpace sucks ass and should be destroyed" issues. My account has been locked because I've supposedly been "phished" but I can't change my password and unlock it because the verification text that is part of the unblocking process is appearing as a red X. Checked my wife's account and hers is experiencing the same problems. That made me wonder if our problems might be due to some technical issues that MySpace is having. Seems kinda unlikely that both our accounts could have been phished at the same time.

hi, just posted the same question on Oeming's board. same thing here. a friend of mine in Cali too. seems that alot of people are going to have this problem until myspace figures it out.

Hm. Nope, sorry, I was able to log in and out just fine. Tried it twice to be sure.

I would image whatever it is, it is likely to be fixed in a few hours though.

Sorry to hear about the issues.

Tom posted this bulletin addressing the issue:

"if you got locked for being phished in the last hour, it's a bug! we're working on fixing it right now. sorry about that! the mechanism to detect if your account has been phished has been very powerful for stopping phishing, but it went a little haywire just now. things should be back to normal soon! if you're wondering what phishing is, read my blog :)"

I just canceled my account. MySpace is kinda lame. I didn't enjoy it.
