Default Keeping passwords secret

Dear Minnie

You are so correct! It is imperative that we all keep our passwords secret. Imagine if someone who has your password logs in and posts vulgar /defamatory comments? That could land YOU in very hot soup, as we would have to assume that it was YOU who did it. It would be really difficult to prove that the person who made the bad comments was someone else, simply because no one else is supposed to have your password.

So do keep your password extremely confidentialy, and change it from time to time just in case it gets leaked out. Now, if you really have to give it to a trusted friend (and do make sure your friend is indeed trusted) you should change it as soon as you get a change to do so (without telling your friend your new password, of course).

Thanks for bringing up this issue and reminding us
