Why for the love of all things holy would a recently founded web tech company of all things not understand about proper password storage?

There is not a D'Oh! | :doh: in the world large enough for storing retrievable passwords these days.

Being hacked is unfortunate, but it can happen to anyone; every server relies on a whole stack of technology that you aren't in complete control of and you can't guarantee you are unhackable unless you create your own server stack, which is a big waste of money. But you need to ensure that personal information is protected even if you do get hacked, especially passwords which are often reused (because if we have 50 accounts in different places it is hard to remember 50 different ones and what you use them all for!).
