I'm not sure how much coding Jim did with CS. He had one or more employed that did that.
Jim is an IT person, he worked in this area before acquiring the operations of CS, he worked on the team of previous owner of CS, the former owner did not just pick a random guy to run CS in the end, he had the qualifications, I'm pretty sure he did the coding along with the million other things to do, he probably had some help in other departments mainly support, but nonetheless, he was the owner, so responsible for everything that goes on with the business. Perhaps the plain text thing was something that was left over from the former owner, which I would not be surprised - and who knows, maybe even Stormpay stored user data as plain text, I would not be so surprised either
But whatever, I think ClixSense and Jim made up for its shortcomings, big time, though they made some mistakes along the way that have pushed potential partnerships along the way - but there again, the Affiliate program was very popular at the time, especially when the site started as a PTC and the optimal way to earn good money was through that program, and some people did, including you
CS had a great run over the years, I'm not going to go into why I was not too concerned about the 2016 hack
but let's just say that even though I had gullible years before CS, I knew better than to think my data was safe on ANY given site
I remember CS on its legacy, and had CS continue to run he would have still processed those payments manually
This is one area that ySense has done better, automated some of the processes that are still done manually by some owners, and well let's hope Prodege secures our data and does not use plain text, who shall we ask to find out ? Or better yet, let's not open a can of worms
