Your paranoia with regard to your PM username is unfounded.
You know the saying... "just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you."
I rather think that being paranoid about computer security is generally a good thing. It's a question of how that paranoia manifests itself. For instance, it's good to be paranoid enough that the thought of reusing your perlmonks password elsewhere never even occurs to you. We do, afterall, need to deal with reality as it is.
That said, I'd prefer it we had a secure login. I wouldn't even mind a self-signed cert.
