Dear Adobe,

 

please advance in your information security department and stop that ridiculous security by obscurity while FORCING customers to change their passwords on a regular basis. It is common and public knowledge since at least mid 2019 that this is achieving the opposite of your intention and does not really help (exceptions are existing) security. But it is totally annoying, as is everything that is useless but enforced.

 

Thank [insert your higher entity] that there are alterntives to your products worth taking a look at. Yeah and i know the comments coming like "Dude it's security!" or "Why so toxic about something that only takes 1 minute?".

 

[abuse removed by moderator]

I see your security message in the abuse reports area... which is where a message is placed when ANYONE clicks the report option to remove the message from public view so Adobe may review the contents

 

I have no idea who reported that message for abuse, but it will now be reviewed

As John mentioned, anyone can report an abuse, so it's not necessarily Adobe. In fact, we moderators used to do most the screening of posts. Most of us never removed a post due to criticism towards Adobe, and Adobe never even suggested that we do so. We all feel that it's important for Adobe to know how their users really feel.

With thus new forum, it's not so easy to screen posts. Reported post used to go to a moderator's queue that we would look at, then decide if they violated Adobe's policies: spam, selling things, profanity, insulting comments to other users, etc. Now they just go to a secure area, where Adobe staff attempts to sort through them all. They might not spend as much time reviewing the post as all the non Adobe staff moderators used to do.
