Re: Sailing Resume | Logbook | Web App
While I am sure no one here has ever re-used the same password on two sites cough.. cough.. Most people do reuse password or variants of them and if the site is ever compromised you have no guarantee your information will be protected.
As long as you pepper and hash a stored password this shouldn't be an issue even if your database is compromised.
But, as you said, not the point of the whole discussion. I have considered building something like this myself, it sounds like something I'd use.
My only feedback would be to accept the feedback you're getting... perhaps best bet is to offer Facebook/Google logins AND site specific login, cater to users' needs and they will come more easily (I speak from painful experience on this one).
Good luck with your project.
