Well, who cares if one of them uses a weak password?
The worst thing that could happen is that this user is cracked and all
his data lost. No other users would be affected and in most cases not
the system in general.
If single users have higher access to valuable services, it is
nonetheless mandatory to make sure their passwords are safe. However,
who would let a n00b manage important stuff?
