Office Guy (& Neilo)-

What's up with the mocking?

Is it OK to send out non-temporary passwords, in plain text, in unsecure email?

I actually have many passwords- and am not overly concerned about the one I used when I created for this acct. I know some people have a single password that they use for everything, including their bank accounts- and even write it down on a sticky on their office computer.

My initial post was a little mini-rant, but I didn't lose any sleep over it. However, someone at WA made a conscious choice to send out non-temp, private passwords in email- as part of the initial sign up process flow. It is unnecessary, and unsecure- so why do it?

Now on to trying out some of these new tools. Initial impression looks promising...
