If I had known, I would have put my foot down until the situation was 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.)

[choroba]: it's not on CPAN yet, unfortunately, so you have to install manually from github
[Spenser]: Thanks. I tried DBD::MariaDB just now. It can't find that module.
[Spenser]: oh, I'll check github
