About petrucio's password hash hack... It is not so bad because it only shows the encrypted pwd and can only access cookies related to Perlmonks. With current JS security, I believe that unless you send email messages, you can only talk to the server the page came from.

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
