in reply to Clear text passwords

oops I was wrong, sorry. :) Looks like your password is not sent via clear text either, I see encryption being used in the e-mail headers when I do password recovery. Even on old pw recovery e-mail.

    Kudos for following back up on that.

    In regards to security, many people have been desiring better of Perlmonks for a long time, but this is after all volunteer and there are reasonable workarounds for the SSL-desiring folk.

    At least here at PM, they aren't selling the data on you or the "friends" you speak to here like they are on Facebook (or Google, or 'insert name of monopoly sickness here'). I can't imagine what Your Mother would think if that were to happen if she got her info sold out just because I replied to one of your messages ;)

      Your Mother's friends are all sockpuppets... I should know, we are close.

      Cheers Rolf

      Well it must have been working better yesterday. Today I am getting the pairsite cert. Pretty soon your going to have to click through a skull and bones, 20 field captcha, pics of crying babies just to log in.. The LE cert, perception wise, I think is better :)
