I don't see you having offered to audit the 12k+ cases, did you?

So maybe it's easier to just change them all, and then the handful
that breaks can be fixed?

Do you maybe want to re-think that "stupid" comment?

Or are you going to spend the time to audit all those other %p users,
particularly considering that we _know_ a number of them are bad?

Once you've done that, and offered to keep doing it, we can undo the hashing.

I'll be waiting.
