Ask the mod to move this over to Open Discussion and you'll probably get some feedback.

I would not have posted the fact but rather sent the email direct to a moderator.
It appears you were the target of someone in Prague:
"46.28.110.136 Czech Republic Jihocesky Kraj Hluboka Nad Vltavou Wedos Internet A.s.
Google Map for Hluboka nad Vltavou, Jihocesky kraj, Czech Republic (New window)
Geolocation data from IPligence (Product: Max updated on 4/22/2015)
IP Address Country Region City ISP
46.28.110.136 Czech Republic Hosting Wedos Hosting Services
Continent Latitude Longitude Time Zone
Europe 49.02 15.9 GMT+1

Using a service called "ARIN Whois" you could get even more information.
At any given moment someone is trying to get information by hacking into a Internet IP web address, Forum etc.
If the server at such websites doesn't have a good Firewall in place then you can be hacked unless your PW is really good (as in at least 12 characters/numbers/ upper/lower case).

I recently also received one of these. Some of the personalities on OD are quite weird but I don't think they would go to these extremes. My digging found that it was targeted to my locality and had a spoofed IP based on my reported location. I think there are some weird people here who have odd vendettas. I would be very careful.
