Yes when you subscribed to the mailing list at
https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/flask it warned you that it would
be clear text.

You may enter a privacy password below. This provides only mild security,

> edit your personal options. Once a month, your password will be emailed to
> you as a reminder.
