Jan 22, 2015Everyday someone in this world has their Minecraft account taken from themPosted in: Discussion
I'm creating this thread so people can know how to prevent getting their account taken
1.Don't give out your password to Anyone
You don't know what that person with your password can do
he could delete it, and you don't want that to happen do you?
2.Don't put login details to any site other than Mojang and Minecraft
Cape scams...If you want a cape you should buy a Optifine cape
Those people who made that phinishing site knows that people will do anything for
a cape, even put in account info
3.Don't use the same password for every site you have a login to
If someone does get your password you would'nt want them in your other accounts
4.Keep a long password only you can remember
You shouldn't use a password like abc123 or Password1 use something unique
And always remember keep different usernames and passwords for every site you sign up for
if you see a phinishing site you can report it here https://www.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/
And be sure to change your password once a month
I hope this helped ^-^
Sorry if this was very confusing, if you have anymore ways to keep your account safe
please tell me so I can add more ways to this list

Well, I can't sit around all day replying, I have things to tend to irl, so Ill be gone for a while, probably last time ill check posts today, if you disagree with my posts don't be afraid to express your opinion, but please know there is a difference between raging/trolling, and simply stating your opinion.
I utterly disagree with your opinion.
Most "pirates" are people like me, who have to watch every nickel and dime, just to get by. We will download something, whatever it is, because we've heard great things, and the demo (like in this case) leaves much to be desired.
And when we can afford it, we can: like I just did, when I had the funds come available that didn't have to go towards "unneccesary luxuries" like food and medicines and gas (both varieties), not to mention electricity and Internet.
So, like millions of us poor "power users", and a few million more "average users", I downloaded a cracked version. And I got hooked, absolutely fell in love with the game. I have never tried to play on a cracked server, and wasn't really interested, I wanted to understand the game on my own, and draw my own conclusions.
And today, I had the wherewithal to buy it. And I did.
But the real problem here is your blanket accusation that "all users of cracked clients are crooks", which couldn't be further from the truth in a majority of cases, including mine, and including Lapis, who had a similar experience to mine. And I'm sure there at thousands more with similar stories.
But the fact remains: WE ARE NOT CROOKS!! We are not, in the truest sense of the word, "pirates", either--if I were, I would heave-to aside your house, lock us together with grappling hooks, and invade you, and kill you, and take your stuff and burn your s̶h̶i̶p̶ house down before sailing away in a cloud of cackles. And sell your dog into slavery.
I think that Mojang has seen the truth in the fact that he has issued this with no DRM: it allows any and all to play, regardless of their financial situation; and if they want to go legit, so they can play with legit friends, then they can. And if not, they haven't lost anything but time, and had a great experience with a great game, which would later influence someone else into buying said game. Which propagates into fantastic sales for a great title.
There's even a term for it: "PAY IT FORWARD". By buying the legit game, I'm "paying it forward" to the next user, who will benefit from the improvements in the game. I benefitted by Mojang's "pay it forward", due to his stance on DRM, and his decision to not sue every person who dares alter the code and modify or crack the program. I also benefitted from prior users to went from "pirate" to legit, just in the same way.
And now I have paid my share forward.
Your crass, classless, and needlessly universal accusation of "piracy" of a large portion of the user base does nothing but mollify yourself with your bloated posturing. You aren't helping Mojang's cause, nor the cause of those who feel copyright and "Intelectual property" have been sorely abused by power players using the system to cash out on those unfortunate enough to fall afoul of their idiotic attempts to "STOP STEAL MAH STUFFS!!" EVERY time someone throws down a gauntlet about the "wrongness of piracy, oogieboogieboogie!!", someone goes out to show how ridiculous it is to even try. And you certainly haven't "converted" anyone--if anything, you ticked them off, and sent them running to find yet another thing they can "pirate", just to say that they CAN.
Those that aren't worried about it, however, are the ones with the least stress and biggest bank accounts, simply because they don't have that problem in the first place. The only one with a real "problem" is you, and that's self-inflicted.
And you've made it "OUR" problem, thanks to you lumping us "honest pirates" into the same category as the real "pirates", who are (besides the DVD/CD/BluRay copiers in Mexico and China who rip copies of anything not nailed down) more interested in stealing a legit product with a large user base and making it look legit with all the printed BS that goes along with it. THOSE are the real pirates, and the ones you should be focusing your energies toward.
Unless you're a MAFIAA shill, just looking for easy targets for their extortion programs.
