WebSTAC woes

It seems to me I posted some time ago, maybe 9 months or so, that I discovered that WebSTAC/WebFAC deosn't bother to encrypt passwords but stores them in clear text. I found this out by calling to have my password changed; the admin said he could just tell me my password.

I was shocked. There was no warning of clear-text passwords and how users should pick a password unique to WebSTAC because of this.

I called the WebFAC folks and they said they'd do soemthing about it.

Would you believe they did nothing? I just had to change my password (for security reasons) only to discover that there is still no warning.
