When you call for tech support, they actually ask you what your password is. This can be awkward if your password has lots of punctuation. Also awkward if you use that password anywhere else.
Editor’s Note (2012-11-26):We’ve been told by hostmonster.com that they are no longer storing and/or sending passwords in plaintext.
