Nobody judges him, I'm sure. Or at least I agree with you nobody should.

It's not really a matter of judgement, it's just about good practices.
We certainly should do better than some big companies, who claim to be
at the forefront of Internet security, and yet "authenticate" users with
silly methods like the last four numbers of a credit card number. I'd
rather prefer them piss me off by saying "We're really sorry, but we
can't help you regain access to your account, unless we can reliably
authenticate you. Please understand that this is in your own interest!"

Speaking of which, it's probably a good time for everyone who uses PGP,
but hasn't yet put their fingerprint in AUR, to do it now. Of course,
one could lose their private PGP key either, but then their AUR access
will be the least of their concerns, I'm sure.

And for those who don't use PGP, it might be a good time to start. ;)
