Bad Login Attempts? When?

There have been 1 bad login attempt(s) since your last successful login.
I have a rather.. secure password. But I am getting tired of getting this same message every time I login (which is not very often.)

My question is, what does NS do about this? Because I really don't want this message because someone thinks that they can break into my account (which I can almost garantee is impossible, assuming you can guess random numbers, letters and symbols.)

We've discovered a number of search bots (Yahoo, Google) recently trying to get into nation accounts. No idea why, perhaps looking for blank-passworded private sites to catalog.

Your two most recent attempts were from Ignore them.

Lol, so it's a search bot that's trying to hack my nation? All this time I thought it was a human... Maybe, on the login pages, there should be an anti-bot measure? I know of a meta tag that would help. :P

Anyways, thanks for clearing that up.
