Default Some keeps trying to get into my account

I don't hang out here much because I ended up not having the time to put into a project like this. I ended up forgetting all about the forum in the middle of all sorts of other things that were more urgent, until a few days ago... my e-mail inbox was flooded with failed login attempts into my account here. What's going on?

Seeing as your user name is User Name, which is the default thing the login box says, maybe it's people accidentally forgetting to put in their own name into that box when they attempt to log in? I know it's a serious matter, but it could explain the vast majority of them.

That's a good point. I'm still a bit confused, though, because I think people need to fail to log in several times in a row to be blocked out (and for the owner of the account to receive an e-mail), isn't it? I have lots of these e-mails and they're all from different IPs. Maybe more people than we know keep locking themselves out and don't even notice they didn't type in a username?
