Passwords in plain text

Dan O'Connor Dan O'Connor Profile: Dan O'Connor

I have to admit I do not do very much web / app development.  Maybe a one or two times a year and I am not sure how you end up with storing passwords in plain text?

I guess you would have to write your own authentication, not sure why you would go through all of that when there is stuff already made. Strange.
