in thread Email security for monks?
Fair enough that moves the problem from "I forgot my password" to "I lost my private key", but people tend to take more care of their private key.
(I'm sure you know this, I'm just going for a bit of an expository ramble here :)
e.g. I really wish I had of uploaded my public key to perlmonk.org since I've changed my password and forgot to note it down in my top secret "net passwords" file. Now I've gotta do exactly what the top poster said - convince jcwren that I'm not some yahoo trying to hijack an account.
And as for the forgetting the email address problem - it does happen. I've been on the web long enough that I have accounts on servers where the email address is now invalid due to me moving ISPs - perlmonks is one of those (I'd better go fix it now).
I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
