    I've noticed there're some business in India who send you password in plaintext. And the worst thing is anyone in their help center can change it, can login on your behalf, and can tell you on your phone..

    I don't mind it too much on registration when it's a generated password and not stored as plain text. The last part of vital! When you get the password from the forgot creds feature than you don't want to do business with them 😲.
    I do think there are better solutions like a one time login link.
    Of course both methods should only be used when user does not create the account...

    @irene THANK YOU! they really are. I actually had a spam attack to fend off once, and it came mostly from their servers https://devrant.com/rants/1636570/...

    @hjk101 No, it was not a generated password, it was the password I set myself, sadly.

    @LinusCDE It's changing the subject because I explicitly allowed GMX to, otherwise Thunderbird wouldn't pickup the spam mails (as far as I know, it might have changed by now), so in order to prevent myself having to login into my mailaccount every time I suspect something is in the spam, I'd rather have it this way.

    @ThatPerlDeb Thats's actually a good feature.

    @Floydian never heard from me?
    How do you mean it?
    And why am I an asshole?
    I thought we both were good. What happened?

    B/c sending you a salted / encrypted password won’t serve any purpose. Than you won’t even know what your password is... duh 🙄

    @Floydian hey there buddy, didn't you teach us all that after every sunset there is a sunrise? :)

    How's work otherwise, were you able to transfer to another position? or if not any other ways work is fine?

    Also found ways to keep your own zen or should you after all return to devrant and stick to e.g. just subs?

    My offer of chatting is still there if you prefer that, just tell me an email I could ping you at, though I am sure having to talk to the remaining good people on here and vent it out every now and then also will help, like how maybe I even can't.

    You don't have to touch the wound anymore either, just focus on what's going on day to day and find ways to progress towards small achievable goals. A guy in here started his "year of code" challenge he's publicly following for like a month already, something like that could be fantastic for you, I am sure.

    @Floydian what's your discord again?

    @Floydian can't seem to find you, are you sure?

    @Floydian I have tried to contact you back on discord again and again. But it took you a very long time to unblock me.
    I must have checked it out more than 20 times.
