Stupid is...
Stupid is standardized email address naming schemes.
Stupid is a public address book with 3176 listings of standardized email addresses.
Stupid is attaching 3176 real names to those email addresses.
Stupid is making those 3176 listings quickly and easily downloadable and converted into a bulk mailing friendly format.
Stupid is giving those 3176 email addresses a shared default password every four months.
Stupid is assuming that you're going to get 3176 people to change the password on an account many of those 3176 people don't realize they have.
Stupid is not realizing what makes the above facts stupid.

Stupid is... is a follow up to a post I made a few weeks ago called Stupid Security Practices
