I can't speak for anyone else, but for me it was your statement about
the flawlessness of LastPass that triggered my critical response. It's a
weakness I have... if someone says "it cannot be done" I will at least
have a look at it.
It is true that people are too wary of strangers on the bus. The world
would be a better place if we could all just trust each other a little
bit more. I blame the 1% for causing this ;-)
Nevertheless, your tip on LastPass is appreciated. I might even go and
use it myself, for some of my passwords.
