The passwords are encrypted. That's why whenever you register, the password box is always the dots or '*'

They can indeed if they wanted to badly enough.

It would take a lot more effort than it would be worth I think, unless you happen to be protecting a few hundred thousand dollars in your bank account with the same password.

Protip: NEVER check the "Remember password" box. That's the easiest way to forget your password.
Waiting to move to Texas. My new house should have much faster internet, allowing me to play Mabi again. :D

Yeah, I have the box checked all the time, and I still remember my password.
Of course, I've been here almost 2 years...
Yeah...Only time I forget a password is when I visit the site like once a year.
I have a pretty insane password I use.
Its pretty much muscle memory now but i know what and why its in that order in specific.
For social sites I use a pretty simple password but i still feel like id be pretty hard to guess.
My password for the important things is somewhat short but incredibly nonsensical. For social sites and things like that it's normal words and a number.
