Minecraft account compromised?

    Hey guys, been a long time since I posted in here!

    The other day I got two emails from Mojang to say my password and email for my Mojang account had been changed. I managed to get in quick enough and change the password and reset my email address however. But whoever had hacked the account had changed my name (which was reversible) and my minecraft username (which can't be changed for a month now).

    I got onto Mojang support, and explained the situation to them and asked could the please reinstate my original username - here's the reply I got:
    Unfortunately we cannot change the username back, because it is being blocked by our profanity filter. I cannot give you a time when or if it will be removed or not.

    My minecraft username is the same as on here, and I've been using it since December 2010 without any issues...

    Has anyone else had this issue? Name changes or accounts being stolen? I can only assume my account was hacked and sold on one of those dodgy sites!

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
