[thelist] Offering contracts: Opinions on Etiquette?

A *real* simple example of why this is bad deals with databases. Most
developers password-protect and even encrypt their databases to secure their
data. This means that ASP must connect to the database using the
username/password that the database requires... which means those are in the
source code

This would only be true if the developer was an incredibly bad coder... No
one would expose UserID and Password in a sample given to someone. Any good
coder has the UserId and PW stored in a separate piece of code, that can
easily be removed before showing the rest to an outside person, even better
would be using a .dll that the pages can call.
