Sorry to hear about your hackage there.
But thanks for warning the rest of us. Could help us from having the same fate.
I like using different "levels" of password. I have like 3 to 4 different passes. Like the most important being for banks, the secondary ones for e-mail and forums. With IM or IRC being a completely different password(s).
Dang it, and I guess the ICQ peeps no longer help you?
