Hell no. This is a developer resource, by and for developers. The fact that they stored plaintext passwords, which has been a worst practice since the invention of the hashing algorithm is in one word: Outrageous. This stuff is so basic, so incredibly basic, that there is no excuse. If you can't even bother hashing your passwords, you should be banned from posting code on the internet altogether.
