Again, I point out that World Of Warcraft, and the rest of the gaming 
sites, are under massive phishing attack, and phishing really does not 
work very well, probably because people are used to entering their 
credentials in an environment that is not a standard web page.  By and 
large, WoW credentials are stolen by installing trojans.

We should not be doing authentication in an ordinary web page.
