A gracious and detailed reply to my somewhat arseoleish initial post.

Even after all you've said, though, it still feels just plain wrong to be handing plaintext passwords over an unsecured connection. And you've got a multiplication factor there of being a news outlet that regularly berates others for plaintext passwords (usually on databases fair enough).

Agreed it doesn't really matter in the grand order of things and I would expect that there aren't too many commentards who are recycling passwords which would be the truly dangerous aspect.

I'll just wait for Soon® to show up then...
