in thread Status of Recent User Information Leak
To add insult to injury, after a painfully long waiting period of inaction, some monk with appropriate access decided that a leet-speak banner on the front page would be the best way to announce the site being compromised, followed by a joking reference to The Hitchhikers GTTG. Really? I failed to see the humour in it and found it to be one of the most publicly unprofessional acts I have ever witnessed.
This reminds me of The Parable of the Old Man, The Boy, and The Donkey. Thus far, site admins have been vilified for notifying all users, not notifying any users, notifying only FaceBook users, notifying only users whose e-mails and passwords had been leaked, and on and on. Frankly, I am surprised we still have admins to bitch about and a site allowing us to bitch, given the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" mentality of so many. Fortunately, even more seem to ask what they can do to help rather than stand back and pour more kerosene on the fire.
