I tried with one of my domains and put in a random name. Still worked.

What i find mildly amusing is this message on the page after you click 
the link and get your password.

"If you have received this notification and have not requested your 
domain password please contact your sponsoring registrar or reseller 

I understand it on the email, but after you've read the email and 
clicked the link.....
