    And if two people knew the password, and one wanted to change it, [s]he would have to let the other person know, which would be a hassle, so the password wouldn't get changed as often, so security would be decreased . . . .

    If I was in charge of a site as nice as CBoard I'd make a complete backup before giving anyone a password that let them do anything, and I'd want to know the recipient's address and phone number at least.
    I'd assume that two people already have the cpanel password, that being kermi and Alex. These all seem like pretty silly concerns.
