Idiotic webshops

🕧︎ - 2014-02-03

I create an account in a webshop, using "pwgen --secure 24" to generate a random password that is 24 characters long.

What does the webshop do?

Emails me the password in a clear text email.

Luckily the shop has a "Delete account"-button right next to the "Change password button".

I choose the former, thank you.

To avoid spam many websites make you fill out a CAPTCHA, or log in via an account at a corporation such as Twitter, Facebook, Google or even Microsoft GitHub.

I have chosen to use a more old school method of spam prevention.
