Your logon is saved in a cookie on the machine that you are running on. If it did not do this, every time that you clicked a link in javaranch and it opened another browser window that required knowing your logon ID, you would have to logon AGAIN. That would be REALLY irritating.
Your login (user) name cannot be changed. Note that your password is not encrypted and may be accessible by the message board administrators. Do not use a password that you would be afraid to reveal to anyone.
All of the information you provide on this page (with the exception of the password and login name) will be viewable by anyone visiting the message board. Thus, if you do not feel comfortable completing any non required fields, please leave them blank.

Where is the warning that my passwords are being saved in palin text on a client side?
What is the sense of password that someone wants to reveal to everybody?

I already found Javaranch's cookie (it has the name firstname.lastname@example.org) and it contains in palin text my password and my user name!!!
If it is being done in such a way: users should be warned about it, do not you agree with me? Because saving people's passwords in public PC to publicly accessible shares without any warning is very-very unpleasant fact
