(PF said I could ask dumb questions.)

I log in ....... I push the remember me button ...... and sometime later it asks me to log in again.

Is this because of careful site security?  

Or is the site just being annoying ?

I've noticed that, too, Oliver. I don't know the answer but suspect that it might have something to do with cookies. The computer kind, not chocolate chip or oatmeal.

Yes, I'm sure that you are right IF the site cooperates. 

I am able to clear cookies that collect during any time I am on line.  This allows one to discard unwanted cookies at will.  My I.D.'s are probably stored in cookies so FM site looks for those credentials UNLESS I erased them.

So far, so good BUT I do not make it a habit to erase cookies nearly as often as the FM site wants me to log in. 

So, Yes or No or Maybe smile

Funny thing is that I've had to log-in more often too. Wonder if it has anything to do with the latest WP-update.

I have the same problem and depending how long i'm away from the site dictate's whether or not I have to retype User Name and PW. I have Window's Internet Explorer. When I click on "Tools" to delete my browsing history, I only delete my cookie's. I don't delete my "Temp Internet File's", "Saved Passwords", "History", "Form Data", I only delete the "Cookies".

So Oliver, it doesn't matter which operating system or type of computer you have, I think it's just the way it's set up.

Whatever is going on is relatively recent ..... perhaps the upgrade as FM says.

No big deal, just distracting.

It's been like that for me since I joined the site, Jan. 21 2012

I also ignore it.

While discussing the site ......  I have yet to really understand how the SEARCH works dazed

What does "bow rosin" return ?  Every iteration ?  In title and/or text ?

The worse part is to find a post by someone else when I don't quite remember the details.

Gee, maybe you just happen to have a computer and operating system that works with this site.

It has to do with the site asking for a password ... but not ALL the time.  Sometimes.

Probably to do with "cookies" but I don't know enough to tell.

Yes, "remember me" is supposed to know who you are next time without logging in.  SOME programs will ask for log in once in a while for security check.
