One solution to this might be for people on the list to have a password to the FTP site, so we could put up files. However, only Larry would be able to down load them and that would require another password which would not be broadcast to the list or on the web page. Hackers are less likely to use an FTP site for storage if they can only upload. They want to do upload and download. Of course, some smart computer person may ultimately find the password that Larry is using, but that would be much easier to change than changing all of our passwords.

This is so unfortunate. As it was, anyone in the world could freely submit podcasts. But now if the password is changed, posting it on the website wil allow the culprits access since I suspect they know which web site is associated with the ftp site. Is it going to come down to each of us needing to have our own password I wonder?
