Rant: Is everyone who sets up password protocols nuts?
I went to pay my State Sales Tax and couldn't for the life of me get logged on. I had to have it send me a new password. When I went to set up the new password I saw why I couldn't recall my previous one.
This is a password people use once a year to file their state sales tax. Who's going to remember it without writing it down, and what's the point of having passwords if you make them so danged complicated everyone has theirs written down? At a minimum I wish that when you fail to get the username or password on a website right, instead of just telling you you got it wrong, perhaps they could prompt you with their silly password protocols. Many is the time I have gone through the rigmarole of a password reset, and when I got to the entry page and saw the protocol realized what my original password was and just reused it. Between this and captcha I spend half my time online fuming. Rant concluded.
