I do not think that it is very constructive and helpful to stick another person's nose in it and effectively say "see what you've done?". Not being a financial institution does not excuse a web site from taking appropriate and reasonable measures to ensure safety and security of its users' data, both in-flight and at rest. I commend Neowin for securing my login data and for striving even further than that by wanting to secure the login form itself. Let this be an example to other communities. And no, Neobond did not pay an exorbitant amount of money to me to say this.

Well, I guess it'll be encrypted for all eventually. Bets you are glad this topic was revived? :)

If reviving this topic leads to greater security of Neowin users' data while remaining commercially sustainable for Neobond et al to operate, then yes, I am glad.

Cool, I'd use it if I wasn't, well, banned.
