if your password or email here exposes anything amazing about your life then you should probably rethink your security strategy.
Nobody is asking them to perform a security audit. At the very least though, there should be a news post or automated mail to registered users.

Ideally, like most other sites, passwords should be reset given that the breach is confirmed on two sites, with info that I know is valid.

Look, I joined what... 13 years ago? Back then, me and most other young people probably didn't pratice the best web security. I'm willing to bet that a large number of accounts here use the same password for their registered e-mail, and who knows where else. Facebook, Twitter... it's in the best interest for FFR to be upfront and alert people to what happened.

In fact, I'd argue that it's their moral responsibility.
