Not the only one by any stretch

I remember trying to log into a site (a primary school magazine/blog thing) clicking the "I forgot my password" and receiving an email telling me my password as plaintext.

I use throwaway passwords for trivial sites so the damage wasn't big but I could well imagine that there are many sites like this and many users who use the same password across multiple sites.
