in thread Status of Recent User Information Leak

Finally, I would like to apologize, again. In particular, for my part in not re-implementing enough of the password system at PerlMonks. There are quite a lot of improvements that I've long wanted to get to related to passwords at PerlMonks. Hashed passwords was certainly one of them.
Thanks, I'm glad to hear the acknowledgement, and the apology -- but it should be part of the above summary, not buried in the comments. And while I personally agree that one should never re-use passwords, the admonishing tone about that advice is a bit much... you're pointing the finger in the wrong direction.

    you're pointing the finger in the wrong direction.
    Not to worry, because every time you are pointing a finger at someone else you are pointing three back at yourself!!! (^_^) [Think about how you fold the non-pointer fingers in.] Of course after a co-worker used that on me back at my first job I made sure to always point all of my fingers, toes/feet, and even my nose directly at him!! (^_^;)

[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
[choroba]: Discipulus Try changing the URL constants to something else
