The forums' passwords are different to the ingame ones, aren't they? I don't think I've ever used their forums.

Isn't integrated login such a wonderful convenience?

If by "integrated", you mean "pants-on-head stupid", yes. Sigh.

Doesn't really matter because the flaw wasn't you or your passwords it was their server security.

Well, the important thing is that I wasn't using my memorable password, which I would have to change on Important Shit due to a breach.

Downside to this is that I can't reasonably use a random string for, say, PSN due to the console interface.
