Yeah, it's to keep spam levels down. I'm pretty good at authorizing the first post within the hour it was submitted, except during the times I'm asleep, of course.

I've just had to create a new account because I had got my password wrong a few (ok probably more than a few) times

I reset the password but the forums now tell me to type in a CAPTCHA to reactivate the account but unless I'm being even more stupid than usual there isn't a CAPTCHA to type.

Is it possible to get my old account unlocked?

Many thanks,

That's Joe Buckley's site, we don't have any control over his hosting. I'll try poking him, but to be honest I haven't heard from him in quite a while.

Ok, read the rules, they are fine. ;)

Hate to make this my first post :evil: :evil: , BUT:

Can we get rid of this absurd password requirement so that one can actually type it in in under 5 minutes? Good Grief. An internet forum is not Fort Knox. The type in the numbers thing when registering gets rid of all spam bots.

Caps, numbers, and letters? What the heck on an internet forum containing discussion on a FICTIONAL book(favorite author), requires verification equal to my bank account?

Holy Cow. Sanity please? :!:

I'm a computer science major, so I keep an eye out regarding security. I'm not worried about spam bots accessing your account. I'm worried about someone getting access to the database, cracking the password and email list, then using it to hijack accounts elsewhere. Even if you practice safe internetting, not everyone else does. So if they recycle email accounts and passwords to register at other sites, an attacker could easily get access to your entire digital life (there's a great Wired article where that happened to one of the writers). To that end, I want the passwords to be complex as possible, to make the problem space large. No admin worth his or her salt would ever want to make things easy for an attacker, no matter what said attacker's ultimate goal is. But I can't do that and still have a password system the average person could use. Be thankful I didn't enforce a longer password length or a requirement for non-alphanumeric symbols. Nowadays it's quite trivial to crack passwords 10 to 11 alphanumeric characters long, thanks to GPU assisted hashing and selective dictionary based rainbow tables.
