Thanks to all the gods for the hard to work to handle this breach as gracefully as possible, and for all the other helpful monks who helped other monks changing their passwords, pointing them to relevant threads etc.
I know that you earned lots of criticism in the CB and in other discussions here for not handling this breach the way they wanted, or not using hashed passwords in the first place.
With 50k accounts that's to be expected. There'll always be somebody who's unhappy with your reactions, and many diverging opinions.
Still I think that you did an incredible job, especially if we consider that you're all just volunteers with day jobs and real lives.
Update: And please take it with some sense of humor ;-)
