Using the same password for all your online accounts in like using the same key for your house, car, office, bank deposit box, mail box, bike lock, etc, etc, etc and then leaving a copy of the key with every manager of every service and letting unknown third parties by the dozen tool the copies for you. No one in their right mind would consider doing that. I wish people would take a little more conscientious responsibility for their online lives too.
That said, I agree that deleting/locking is a good idea and of course it's quite sad that a place like this where everyone actually does know better was still keeping clear passwords at all. I'm not personally particularly worried about it because I have different passwords for every one of 100+ sites I have accounts. Anyone who doesn’t is inviting disaster. Some hackers don't announce their hacks. Some sites don't report, or even necessarily ever know about, security breaches.
