Is this the most odious online registration ever?

Filed under: Content-lite,Uncategorized — Daran @ 6:08 am

After carefully reading their terms and conditions, (you wouln’t want to agree to something you hadn’t read, now, would you), and clicking the appropriate button, you are presented with a form which asks, not just your name age and email, but your job and your salary too. All in ‘required’ fields.

Oh, and my sixteen character password was rejected because it had non-alphanumerics. “Your password is too secure. Please choose a less secure one”.

Do they seriously believe that people are going to give them correct information? Normally when I see “registration required” I’m out of there, but in this case I really want to read the linked article.

  1. Three words for you, Daran.

    Bug me not.

    Also available in a handy Firefox extension.

    Sure, it doesn’t have everything, but I can go through the registration process if I ever need something from the Kathmandu Herald.
