In other words almost everyone with very, very, very few exceptions.

Okay, I admit there is a tiny minority of people who don't reuse 
passwords.  (Including me.)

Other than a few geeks I know from online, and my mother-in-law (because 
I told her to), I don't know anyone else who doesn't reuse passwords.

But if I am allowed a non-zero epsilon in my value of "everyone", I 
stand by my assertion. And it needs to change.


P.S. Help fight the battle: Please contradict all who repeat the 
obsolete admonishment to never write down a password. That advice became 
obsolete once we started to have multiple accounts on different systems.
