Don't give to many hints!

I suggest to take the Saints in our Book page down or at least remove the information when a user last logged in. It might not be a big issue, but seeing that someone didn't log in for 46 weeks now implies that he might not know of his published password and so odds are better that his password is still valid on other sites.

    I see that blazar (who died in late 2008, I believe) logged in 12 hours ago ... which is a bit unsettling.
    Who is going to change his password ?

    Update: I see that new passwords have been allocated to anyone who hadn't made a change ... I think this will probably take care of the matter.
      my other account Courage, which is actually my favourite, (and "officially "approved) is also seemingly compromised - I can't login, and it was in saints...
      mailing the password does not work, I guess my email was changed?

      OMG... what to do??

      Oops. Having the same ugly impression that some none saint accounts are being used by impersonators. :-(

      With kind regards.
      OMG, I completely missed that post! The the thread is Sad news. How tragic!! (T_T)
