Email passwords in plain text?

November 16, 2008

Why do so many sites continue to send me welcome emails with both my username and password in the same message?

I just signed up for the account two seconds ago.  If I forget my password, just email me some link to go reset it or find a way to securely give me some sort of hint.

Thank you to both WordPress and Shozu for exposing my passwords for me this week.
