LOL...my wife is a paranoid BS in CS, so she refuses to run Java, scripts and a bunch of other shiat I can never recall, and she uses a ~20 digit password for everything...that she won't type...instead copy pasta from a text file.

Of course, she can only actually view about one page in three she clicks on, and can only change web pages about every 30 seconds, but nobody can see her baby pics.

*rolls eyes*

The US DOT recently changed its discussion board. The old system didn't require a password. You typed a name and that's how your post appeared. The questions were like "My agency recently installed some W29-307B symbolic dingo crossing signs. How long should we maintain the supplementary `Dingo Crossing' plate?" They hardly needed much security.

Somebody official noticed the government-run system did not meet government security standards. The result was a new requirement for prior approval of posting and use of a 12 character password with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining how the character was secure against Canadian sign thieves. And a comparatively dead board.
