@stuts i've had at least 2 sites reject Firefox's randomly generated password as insecure because it didn't have a symbol in it

@daz Toots must not contain percentage (%) or ampersand (&)!! Are you trying to break the internet?!

@stuts trying to break the internet?&&### no! Of course not. &&### -- drop table users;

@stuts yikes

i... just don't understand how anyone can set restrictions like this and think that what they've done or what they've been delivered is even remotely acceptable. like, somewhere along the pipeline is that password being included in a url or api request or something in cleartext???


@limni it's ridiculous, are they really open to ol' Bobby tables breaking their site?!
