    Believe it or not, they wanted the password to be the same as their banking PIN... which they told me!
    SMH.
    I've heard it all now, can we just go ahead and shut the Internet off? There is no more stupidity left to find.

    Pin Number Passwords

    Gentlemen, you would just be amazed at how many people use the last 4 digits of their phone, or social security, numbers as their Internet Passwords for everything!!

    I used to work on an IT help desk. Not much surprises me about peoples passwords and security conciousness. I also look both ways when crossing a one way street!

    You are wise to look both ways on a one way street. Working in law enforcement I can tell you there are a lot of people out there who are a) drunk, b) don't bother to read street signs, or c) too lazy to go around the block when they are "just going 100 feet or so".
