Sending Passwords By Email

It amazes me how many sites allow you to register, and then send you an e-mail to your registered address containing your password in plain-text. There is never a warning stating that the site will email the password you use, for all to see. Sending passwords by e-mail works when you forget a password. ... wants to read it. Sites should seriously consider the security implications of sending passwords by e-mail, especially if there is no prior warning that this will happen!
