I do not encourage people to enter their passwords on random websites. I do, however, encourage people to read PDDs (Prominently Displayed Disclaimers) that state:
"This is implemented in server-side code, which means that when you type, the phrase you are testing is sent across the Internet. I do not store or track (or care) what passwords you test. If you are really worried about it, then don't use real passwords. In fact, I recommend that you *don't* use real passwords. There's no reason to risk it. Note that this page supports HTTPS."
