Question Makes me question Kunena and security

I didn't plan to write anything about the security of Kunena when I registered here. But the fact that I right after I registered got an e-mail with my password in plain text makes me question everything about Kunena.

Are there other security problems with Kunena? And the very essence of the people that code for Kunena. What do they actually think about when they manage to get my password and then send it to me over e-mail in plain text?

This breaks one of the most important rules when it comes to handling passwords.

Ah, sorry for that. Does this mean that Joomla is sending out an e-mail with the password as plain text?

In effect, yes. :)

I hope this eases your concerns regarding your general comment that may make you "question everything about Kunena" vis-à-vis site security.
