What, exactly, do you see as such a threat? What is the worst case
someone being able to access the VTR pages as you?
In a few days the monthly Team.Net mailing list reminders will go
out, they include users email address and list passwords in plain text.
As far as I know, there have been no reports of list members having
some malicious interloper switching them from regular mode to
digest or some such. But hey, I guess it could happen.
