Password hack

This password hack is just brilliant. Keep one secret password. Never use it in public, but use an MD5 hashed version of the master and the current site instead. With a little help from software it's as easy as using the password directly and you're not grossly vulnerable to attacks on website17 that you registered at 3 years ago.
A translucent response to the "Registration required" password hell around us.
