The confirmation email the website sent me has the password in fucking clear text

Fucking hell, why do websites keep doing this? Hashing isn't some new concept.

Have you been under a rock lately? The number of breaches have been astounding. Not just the big ones, but every other month I'll get an email about a breach, sometimes for a service I long forgot about, and end up going through and either deleting that account or maxing out the password limits for that host to render most dictionary, rainbow table and brute force attacks moot.
No, the attacker is going to get a dump of the service's data first somehow. Only then will they bother breaking protections of passwords on the database when they can have at it locally. Maybe they'll sell it to someone else, and then distributed efforts will be had to get your password.
Autism level or not, strong passwords, even autismal level strong passwords are doable now with good password managing solutions and there is no excuse to use the same password in more than one place. Its not worth the risk to blow it off otherwise.
lol, I used to do an internship for the government.
