Hahaha, no kidding. Someone saved themselves a lot of grief.
More companies should use hashing passwords, it ticks me off when I can't enter a password WITH SPECIAL CHARACTERS because they basically store it plain text.

MD5 is the way to go :). SHA-1 maybe?

I've heard (not 100% on this though) that sha1 requires a fair bit more processing thatn md5 so on a high-load forum it may not be the best option. Also phpBB uses md5 now and they could hardly go changing the hashing algorithm each update because then all users on every board would have to recreate their passwords.

I was just saying that companies could use any encryption algorithm so that passwords aren't easily obtained (plain text).

MD5 is SO SIMPLE!!! It takes up a lot of space for all the bits, yes, but it is a lot more than secure then just 'making sure a good password for user access to the SQL server' is in place.
