We are aware, and pleased to see, that some of our regular members are also helping out with support.
This is something we naturally encourage (provided they are competent with SMF of course),
however some have also been asking users to provide them with hosting, ftp and/or forum admin passwords.

Whilst we are sure that the majority of our members are honest, we would ask that you think twice before giving out your site passwords to members who are not a part of the Simple Machines team.
"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
