      Forums (especially ones like Proboards) have very easily hackable accounts as the passwords haven't been encrypted decently. If your password is the same for your paypal and netteller sites as it is for anything else, then it's a risk. I use loads of different passwords for pretty much everything (well, my password for certain things are the same, but not my paypal).
