There is a really simple reason we owned PerlMonks: we couldn't resist more than 50,000 unencrypted programmer passwords.
That's right, unhashed. Just sitting in the database. From which they save convenient backups for us.
Believe it or not, there is actually debate at perlmonks about whether or not this is a good idea. Let's just settle the argument right now and say it was an idea that children with mental disabilities would be smart enough to scoff at. We considered patching this for you but we were just too busy and lazy. I'm sure you can figure it out yourselves.
This isn't a bad set of passwords, either. Programmers have access to interesting things. These Perl guys are alright, just a little dumb apparently. A lot of them reuse. You can explore them yourselves, I really do not want to point out anyone in particular.
In case you guys are worried, we did NOT backdoor dozens of your public Perl projects. Honest. Why would we want to do that?
Not worth our time ;)
