LinkedIn hacked

I get from this blog post (and this update) that about 6.5 million LinkedIn accounts were posted online and the passwords were simply hash'd without using a salt. Judging by this, it's perhaps time to close LinkedIn altogether as not knowing that passwords need to be encrypted and not simply hash'd seems to me like a sign of how weak their infrastructure is.
