    Warning: I only recently started reading Mr Mercedes. Please don't ruin the fun.

    If I understand correctly, when you sign up to the chat website, you only get a username? The letter did not include a password, only a username.

    Doesn't that mean if I know someone's username (which I do since I chat with them), I can login under their account, impersonate them and read their chats??

    That doesn't sound like a very privacy-minded service ....
    Or am I missing something?

    Hi and welcome to the site. :)
    I'm not too sure whether it is all still up and running, I'll just leave an alert for Moderator and she will get back to you about it.

    "I'm not too sure whether it is all still up and running"

    By "it" you mean this forum?

    oh, but I'm not asking about the real website, I'm asking about the fictional site within the book! haha
    Re-read the original question. I'm not trying to login to that fake website. I'm asking about the plot/logic in the book.

    :laugh: My bad! Sorry about that.
    I'd have to re-read that part of the story, but it does sound suspect when you put it that way, yes.

    I just looked this up and there is no password for the site.

    But perhaps it is so secretive that one only needs a username since the site never keeps a history of anything.
