I just signed up for this website and was absolutly horrified to recieve an email from you with my username and password.  Why would you ever email out someone's password?  Email is not secure and this is how hackers get people's information.  It is unnecessary and careless of you to email out anyone's password ever, especially with the username.  I will be cancelling my account and recommending that our club not use this site.

A password is only emailed to bootstrap a new user or recover an account.  The user is responsible for changing the generated password. Except at the moment a password is randomly generated,  the password is stored encrypted and not displayable or sent any way.

That is incorrect.  I was emailed the password I used to create the account.  It was not auto generated and it absolutley was sent in a readable format in email.

A complete rework of the password setting, resetting, user creation workflow and a right to be forgotten is in process and will be installed as part of a general 'Privacy' release to cover new European General Data Protection Legislation early in the new year.
