@Gilles can you give an example? That actually sounds true to me, but more specifics would be helpful.

You are correct PaĆ­lo. The performance of the hash depends on the application of the hash. However, slow hashes are always more secure than fast ones. The reason you would use a fast hash is if you are okay sacrificing security for performance.
