First, be sure to not reuse any passwords between the don't-care
machine and any others. It could be compromised, your password
sniffed, and reapplied on a machine that you do care about.

Second, be willing to face wrath (if not someday liabilities) if
someone uses your don't-care machine as platform from which to attack
or spam others.

I think you want to do a reasonably good job of protecting this <on
topic> machine.
