Please correct your forum software to NEVER send a password in clear text unless specifically requested, and then send a randomly generated one.

I now have to go and change my password on 12 other forums, since your system exposed my password in a welcome message.

That is not OUR software, so we will not modity it. We are going to replace it with other forum in a future. For now I could only recommend you not to use sensitive password on public forums.

With best wishes,

i like this forum software, its easy to use, i actually post on this forum because i can just post a reply on the same page as im reading the thread unlike other forum software.  i dont use sensitive passwords for general forums like this one so its great that i get an email with my email/password so that i can retrieve it down the road from outlook easily.
