"But the blame is not on "the gods", but on all of us - me included, you included."

Wrong.

The blame is on those who knew, but did not correct the problem.

The blame is on those who knew, but did not tell others.

That may be you -- but do not include me. If I had known, I would have put my foot down until the situation was rectified. Remember when Janitors were pruned? Don't go pointing fingers about volunteering when you know damned well that you keep people out of your inner circle.

And why ... pray tell ... has the issue still not been rectified?

    We still sign-in without https so the site is, as it always was, insecure. If you ever had your password mailed to you, which I think we all have, then you should have known they were plain text.

    The site's value was never that it was a paragon of forum software. Nothing about what makes the place valuable has changed. All that happened in the end was some cold water got thrown on a bunch of users who prefer to post anonymously.

    (Sidebar: Fun to see if this thread is still going when Perl 6 is released.)
