The messier your password is, the harder it is to crack (Ghu87HJ$$ju82H is much harder than password1 or 12345678 to crack)
With brute force........ it doesn't matter when unencrypting a hash.

MD5 is vulnerable. It's also widely used. The U. S. Department of Homeland Security said MD5 "should be considered cryptographically broken and unsuitable for further use".

It is better than nothing.

Webs you visit every day get hacked every day. It's the nature of the beast. I'd expect spam filters will probably cure any of our email ills. I cleared all my spam mails Feb 1 and half way through the month, I have 411 spams.

I'd expect, since someone wanted the email addresses of people using the forum, what? I'm gonna have 412?
