But I thought having plain text passwords displayed on the computer was
unacceptable to you "Another problem, you would need to have the passwords
in clear text, which isn't acceptable for me." from message ID:
Any shell script that can be used for "randomly generating passwords" will
return the pain text version of the password or nobody would be able to USE
THE PASSWORD. So, either pain text passwords are acceptable to you and your
claim that they are unacceptable to you is a lie. Or they are unacceptable
to you and your use of the script is hypocritical and your criticism of R1
for using plain text the same way you do is just another example of your
hypocrisy. Which is it???
