Fail post at

It appears that someone sent a fake email of ours (or perhaps a very, very old one) to a plain text offenders site, and we wanted to clarify that we do not send plain text passwords. In fact, we do not even store your password at all. We just "hash" (scramble) the password when you enter it each time, and we check the scrambled passwords against each other.

What's funny about the post is that the link in it had a ".php" extension, and we don't use those.

I have been using BidSlammer for over ten years and I reset my password all the time. I can say with certainty that I have never been mailed a text password.

ditto. BidSlammer has never used plain text passwords. this was the first thing i checked on when i joined the site actually.

i looked them up, they are run out of Israel. You gotta love these overseas websites trying to wreak havoc on USA websites just for the sake of getting pages and/or traffic.

All my password reset emails from BidSlammer in my gmail do not have any plain text stuff in them.

confirmed - I verified my old ones are legit (no passwords).

The first thing I looked for in the posts was the date of the offending email--- but they don't post the date. A site that reports on credibility isn't much help without ... credibility. lol.

I have a reset-password email from BidSlammer from 2006 and it has no plain text passwords. I posted it in the forum.

Someone report them to ;-)

I agree it defeats the purpose if you don't posts dates. I hate it when people post blog articles and don't show the date, that's an instant close. Offhand, I see you guys publish your dates but it's a bit small ;-)
