My athletic club stores passwords in the clear

The MAC, an athletic club I’ve belonged to pretty much since I was born, stores their passwords in the clear. I learnt this first over the weekend when the website sent me my password after I “reset” it and then today when the webmaster sent me my username and password manually via email. There are so many reasons why this is wrong; unfortunately, people still do it.

As it turns out, the problem was that you can’t log in with Chrome, but you can with Firefox.
