7/13    Why would Yahoo store passwords unencrypted?  I recall that even 20+
        years ago the passwords stored in /etc/passwd on instructional
        machines here at Cal were one-way encrypted.  (I think those were

           I feel bad for all the losers who are still working at YHOO
           and getting weekly dosage of propaganda and waiting for their
           worthless stocks to go up one day.
           \_ Like Marissa Meyer. What a loser.
              \_ Don't know her, but from what I read she sounds like a

           Short answer: it was left over from the Associated Content
           acquisition. Yes it is still pretty stupid. -Yahoo employee
           \_ Why are you still at Yahoo? Couldn't find any other
           \_ Why were you still at Yahoo? Couldn't find any other
              respectable place to work at? In the tech industry, having
              Y! on the resume is like having worked at Enron.
              \_ Are you kidding me? Half the rockstars at the Velocity
                 Conference last week were ex-Yahoos.
