unyon: Smeggy Smurf: I'd rather the goblins think they've scored big when the truth is they only stole my collection of farts in mason jars. I'd miss it but not that much.I particularly enjoyed pineapple salsa fart #4, 1998. It was a good year.

ChubbyTiger: They hack Fark and get the passwords, in hashed format. Then they crack the file (offline). Now they have your email address and a password. Sure, that password is the one you use for Fark, but how much do you want to bet that 50% of the Fark passwords also work for a banking site or Amazon (where they have your credit card), or Facebook (where they get tons of other information), etc.
sprawl15: I've switched to an image based password. It compares desktop backgrounds. Good luck brute forcing the 3MB anigif.
