That could be solved by saving a cookie on your machine (if you so choose).
The next time you logged in, the cookie would get read and you'd be
automagically logged in. It isn't all that secure, but it is harder to spoof
than email.

Would you tolerate putting a special 8-character authentication code
(automatically removed before delivery) into every ClassicCmp post to prove
that you were you?

One of the things that prompted me to think about all this was the inherent
spoofability of email. I feel a desire to find a way around it.
