in reply to It's Time for Everyone to Change Passwords!

Everyone should change their passwords. Just because your password wasn't published (I was very tempted to post the link), doesn't mean that someone doesn't have it. Fortunately, a couple of years ago I started getting more concerned about security and I considered Perlmonks a "low-risk" site (in terms of whether or not I care about a compromise), so I deliberately switched this password to an unique easy-to-remember one (pineappl, if you're curious). It's now changed to something far stronger, but it's another throwaway password. I assume that things like this will recur. It's safer that way.
