Different PINs for different email addresses, when using post-by-email

Title
Different PINs for different email addresses, when using post-by-email

Short, concise description of the idea
At the moment all post-by-email addresses share a PIN. They should have one each.

Full description of the idea
I just started using LoudTwitter to post updates from Facebook, Del.icio.us, etc. to my Livejournal.

Giving them my user name/password seemed a tad insecure, so instead I'm using post by email, as that way they only have Write access, and can't edit or delete anything.

However, I'm now aware that if I want to revoke their access then I'll need to change the PIN that I'm using for my updates, plus any other sites I use for this functionality.

Instead, it would be a good idea if each email address had its own PIN attached to it, so that they could eb changed individually.

An ordered list of benefits
  • More security.
