What, exactly, do you see as such a threat?  What is the worst case 
scenario of
 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.
