to me
A new OAuth token consumer was enabled in Launchpad.

If you did not make this change, please open a new Question on Launchpad <https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+addquestion> or visit #launchpad in IRC at freenode to alert staff of the issue.

I did not open or change a new token in launchpad.
I made an answer to a question where to get help for an individual building a new kernel
This was included in the Ubuntu Documentation that I provided to solve that question,
that is all.
Thank You for all of your hard work, & dedication for Ubuntu, Launchpad, & Linux.

Can you please go to https://launchpad.net/~/+oauth-tokens and let us know if there's an application name listed with a date matching the event in question. That will help us investigate.

Their were no claimed tokens. No unclaimed tokens. On my page where link took me.
The only reference to freenode that I have used was on the above question, providing an answer.
I do not have a IRC account at all.
Thank You for your time and trouble.

Hi, bernard010.

Is it possible that you have used any third-party application that uses Launchpad's login system, such as askubuntu.com, for example?

It seems that we have 2 records of applications requesting your Launchpad's account permission. Both tokens were authorized for 1 hour and already expired (and that's why you do not see them on https://launchpad.net/~/+oauth-tokens).

Anyway, I advise you to change your Launchpad password, just in case somebody else got access to your account.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask bernard stafford for more information if necessary.
