"Nothing from the internet truly disappears no matter how many times it’s taken down."

Yeah right. A lot of website review about my apps have gone disappear since Nokia fall. No even available on wayback machine on google cache. Can't even find a snapshot of my apps in Nokia store. Internet stuff will disappear if the host no interested and remove it from the server.

Proof reading people....: "...start using a password manager to help make sure a data breach at one site leaves your accounts with other sites vulnerable."

Generally scepticism is a good principal, except that Have I Been Pwned is run by Troy Hunt, a well-respected InfoSec professional who largely makes his living through speaking at conferences and consultation, which somewhat relies on the reputation of things like Have I Been Pwned. A cursory query via a search engine would have revealed how Have I Been Pwned and Pwned Passwords work (e.g. posts by Hunt on security.stackexchange.com), and that they're "known good".
