The Manchester evening news site seems to be down - but the same story can be found here.

The Manchester site is working for me now. Horrible, horrible thing to do. How can you ever think that's an acceptable and normal thing to do?

Mitchell had access to the girl's laptop and knew her passwords.
Its partly the girls fault for letting friend have or a quire her password in the first place.

This is one reason I never have trusted anyone with my password. Not my wife, boss or best and most trusted friends and I refuse to know theirs. I do not write them down anywere ether. I may at best write a very criptic clues that I would only understand. An expanple if the criptic clue I would use is the one accout at work that I do not use very offten. The clue is "12", it reminds me of something and that trigers the memory of the word of phrase I used for the password.

Well, if the girl uses the same password for both her computer and e-mail passwords, then how hard would it be?

In any case, that's a shitty thing to do. I'm glad that Disney understood. I just hope the girl doesn't mind [apartment complex that's joked about having promiscuous residents].
