If anyone should ever get their hands on these logs in the first place you
would have a
lot more to worry about than someone getting on someone else's character.
But as for
logging passwords to a mud, I think it is perfectly acceptable. I know we
have lost an
encryption on passwords before and had to wipe them all so it saves us to
just not
encrypt them.
