So, heres a little spiteful thing I’d like to say about the folks in charge of programming AOL password security.
Lets say my screen name is: Somethingsomething
And lets say my password is: kikkoman1999
((NOTE: This is made up, if someone is actually named Somethingsomething@aol.com, then I’m sorry you have a stupid ass screen name))
OK, no problem, I’ve got a name and a PW that no ones gonna figure out.
well then, lets log into aol to check our email k?
Screen Name [Somethingsomething]
Now notice, I didnt put “kikkoman1999” I just put “kikkoman” because I accidentally hit ENTER while typing… But whats this? AOL signed in anyway…?
Well, let me see then, there must be a mistake…
OK, so I narrowed it down… I just enter kikkoma, BING, I get in…!
Umm, kikkoma is NOT my password AOL fuckers! Why can I log in with this PW?
ok… kikkom YEP, logged in!
I tried this (using my REAL screen name and password) on different computers and the way it worked was as long as I got the first 5 letters of my password correct, I got to log in.
This, my friends, is BULLSHIT security.
That is all.
