Just first things first, I sympathize for the people that got cracked again by lamers. Getting cracked is never fun, but ... this really, truly could have been avoided!

It should be common sense that once someone knows a password, don't use it anymore. Even with iron-clad server security, if they know your password, they can still get in. Using a password from the list of account names/passwords is just asking to get hacked.

So, for those of you who did get your password hacked, here's some tips:

#1: Don't use words you can find in a dictionary.

#2: Use letters and numbers.

#3: If you hear of a security breach, change your password. If you get hacked, change your password.

#4: DON'T LET ANYONE ELSE USE YOUR ACCOUNT.

(I've had a few friends who share their accounts, and got banned because his account info was leaked around, and eventually someone botted and got his account banned.)

Finally, that Penny Arcade reference wasn't meant to blast them—they're not bad folks. I bet they'd hate RO, though.
