No idea why you want two FAQs, will this new forum FAQ replace
the old forum FAQ ?

I read the password entry, and that info is AFAIK obsolete:
| Free reporting accounts don't require login,
All accounts require "login" and an existing password. The
"login" info is stored in a cookie, the cookie can be deleted
by an explicit "logout" or any other way to destroy cookies.
As long as the "login" cookie exists the machine (or rather
the browser using the same cookie file or directory) is
automatically logged in - nothing unusual, but not what you'd
want after leaving an internet cafe, or if several users surf
with the same Windows "admin" account. Therefore an explicit
logout can be a good idea.
IIRC there's also an interface working without "login" cookie,
but I've never tested it. The three differences between free
and paid reporting accounts are:
1 - paid accounts can send reports to 3rd parties
2 - paid accounts can "appeal" (but maybe that is obsolete)
3 - of course no nagging for paid accounts
Otherwise free and paid SC _reporting_ accounts are identical,
especially no differences wrt to paswords or "login" cookies.
