Does MakeUseOf.com salt its passwords?

By now we’ve all heard about the Gawker Media / Lifehacker debacle. They were playing loose and fast with the way passwords were stored on their servers and got hacked. The hackers are now running wild with said passwords.

Does MakeUseOf salt their passwords? I’m guessing you guys run a tighter ship.

    There's absolutely no chance of that happening here on MakeUseOf as we do not provide readers with the ability to set up personal accounts. Our comments section is run by Disqus.com and no passwords are stored here either for them.
