Comment Re:RSA Encryption (Score 3, Insightful) 215

I regret to inform you that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. There is absolutely no encryption going on with your WoW account, let alone something as complex as RSA Encryption.

There is an additional password, generated from a hardware dongle, which is required for you to log in, but it is simply a password, not an encryption key. Once it has been successfully provided, the rest of your traffic is identical to traffic on an account without an authenticator. Your account is not "encrypted". You have a second password. Nothing more, nothing less.

Do not break lines simply for the sake of breaking lines. The beauty of markup languages is that each display will independently render it to whatever line length makes sense. When you add your own line breaks for no structural reason, you not only destroy the readability of whatever you're trying to say, but you also break the "Abbreviated" form of display, since it thinks you started a new paragraph. Most people have (Score: 2)'s show up as Abbreviated.
