Obviously not.  What other major company would allow their website to be down for two entire days + ?

This site, along with the customer support site has personal information including addresses and credit card info on thousands of players. Regardless of how long it's been down or will continue to be down I think for once SoE did something right by slamming the door shut and keeping it shut until they are sure all of their customers are protected.

It's the players that are screaming about this right now that worry me the most in the game. Would you trade the security of your personal information in exchange for the right to look up the alts of that guy who just trolled you in 1-9 chat?

I agree security is important -- but for gods sake it has been messed up over a year-- I would think they could close the holes in that time - you could train some one of the streets in that time
