Submission + - MySpace Emails Password But Says "Keep It Secr

An anonymous reader writes: MySpace is on the list of companies sending out passwords through email. I finally signed up (that could be a separate conversation, why I've ignored MySpace till now) and promptly got a welcome email with my password staring back at me. MySpace, though, takes it one step further and adds insult to injury by saying "Keep it secret. Keep it safe." right below my visible password. As if I had a choice at that point, MySpace, you just made it less secret and less safe: http://www.techconsumer.com/2008/03/04/myspace-emails-my-password-but-says-keep-it-secret-keep-it-safe/
