I’ve noticed the warning every time I’ve logged into my WordPress site:
“Your ID is being used to sign in to a device in South Manchester”
and there’s a little map to show the area my shadowy companion inhabits.
And I’ve done nothing about it, for the moment anyway. Who do I know in the South Manchester area ? No-one, to the best of my knowledge. And what kind of creep would want to lurk in my shadows ? I’m not particularly interesting. I’m just an old bloke who writes poems from time to time – that’s all.
And yet it niggles me. I start to wonder what he looks like ( Why did I say ‘he’ I wonder..,.)
Have I been caught up by accident in some MI5 operation ? Why does he only appear when I log in to WordPress ? Or maybe he knows my computer as well as I do – and I don’t know it.
I could, of course, solve the whole problem by choosing another password – but that means changing ALL my passwords, and why should I do that ? Why should I allow him to have some small power over me ?
All I can do is politely request him to go and irritate someone else.
So listen up, slime ball, and get the hell out of Dodge.
