comment Why do some websites enforce lack of SSL?
I saw it at a seminar I was at, so unfortunately I don't have any hard stats on that. It may not be true in all cases, but it's definitely something to keep in mind

comment Could a user never store a password if a username/email hash was used instead?

as long as nobody does anything stupid (for instance, looking at a big red warning from the browser which says "this server uses an invalid certificate" and clicking "shuddup I want to connect anyway" is "something stupid" - don't worry, at least 90% of people will
