I am not Kim, and i do not know him either.
I do not know nothing about hacking. I simply opened my browser on my private computer and he was already logged in.

This is how CS is dying.

its for the .com domain not for the .org domain...so nothing is dying! Anyway, it's a shame what happened to CS!

I've noticed some weird things happening when I use CS. Sometimes my browser (and the whole computer, actually) gets kind of frozen for a while but then it starts going again, and I'm pretty sure it's due to CS, it doesn't happen with other websites.

And also I have problems with my password; at times it says it doesn't recognize it, then again it does. At first I thought it was due to the com/org distinction (it seemed it was happening in the com one and not in the org one) but then it just happened to me in the org one, so I don't know. The thing is, there are apparently two different interfaces for introducing your password, and the one that works for me is couchsurfing.org/n/login
Why that should be, I have no idea! But it's another of those tech-crap (or rather crap-tech) things they have come up with trying to "improve" something that could work in such a much more simple way. Anyway, the last time my log in was rejected, I simply replaced the ending on the URL with the /n/login (because I had noticed that is the one that works), and the other log in window appeared and that worked. The one that works for me has a green rectangular button for "Send." It's really annoying.

It's also a sign of the lack of confidence, trust, enthusiasm created by CS's shitty treatment of all of us that I do not feel like reporting something like this to the "competent authorities" so they can fix it. I just don't believe in CS anymore. It's getting more difficult to use, less effective in finding a couch, a hassle in many ways. Another example of quirks is that CS is practically the only website I use where I *invariably* select and copy whatever text I have written before I click the "send" button because so many times before it has frozen up and I had to rewrite the text I lost.
