Before: Hackers had to hack WoW or some other game's database to get a list of user id's. Relatively hard to do.

Now: All they have to do is write a web crawler / script to collect user names from the forums. There are even pre-mades out there. It's not even illegal to collect information from public websites.

Nobody sits someone down, how dumb is that? There are scripts available on the internet. Legal scripts.
