Is it *really* such a bad idea to use a password twice?

Yup. Password reuse is essentially saying either “I’m too lazy to protect this data,” and/or  “the information on this account is not important enough to take the time to use a good single-use password.” Laziness and convenience is what people who will exploit you and your data rely on to make their job easier and worthwhile.

Also, do not be so naïve to think that your data will not be used against you in some way either directly or indirectly to access other parts of your life (be it digital or physical) if someone gets their hands on it. Anything that can be exploited, will be.
