Having a program that saves your passwords, or uses the last password -- wouldn't that be a lot more security-risky. I mean, if they can hack your master password, then they have them all. Then being able to get to this site would mean being able to get to pay pal, and cc, bank accounts if you have them on line, insurance, government tax sites, and so forth.
If my keeping "Fluffy" as my password does not create a security risk for the site in general, for other people, than can't we just keep our password and take that risk?
If it compromised the site as a whole and other people's private, personal information, than I could understand it.
It sounds more like the people in charge of the site, are incorporating a new password program and have decided, or it requires, upper case, lower case, symbols and a number of characters. I vote for leaving well-enough alone, and changing to such a new system only if there has been some dire consequences due to weak passwords and internet hackers.
BTW, if I start spitting and swearing and threatening people's lives on here, then I am probably going to say it was my little brother on the computer I have over at Mom and Dad's whether or not all passwords are changed. I mean it isn't going to stop anyone from saying that someone else got on under their user name and was a jerk.
I guess I just don't understand the risk. My cc number is not associated to this account and if I did enter one 11 years ago, that cc is now expired and closed. My bank accounts are not. My e-mail is, but it has a different password, so no one can get into there, through here, with the ability to open e-mails, send e-mails, look at personal information or change my settings. All they could do is send me an e-mail.
