On the pat yourself on the back side of things, yes, good security practice does suggest that this sort of crutch is just like writing down your passwords anywhere else. Raise your hand if you know someone who has their login written on the computer or monitor (or a post it attached thereunto). The unwary user who simply says, "Oh! A labor saving device! I hate forgetting the password for that website!" is foolish, but common.
