Has The Internet Out-Lived Its Usefulness?

On two occasions recently I was asked to supply a password, one to save a quote for car insurance and again when trying to gain access to a shopping site. Not ANY password, one that had to contain at least two of this, two of those, a couple of symbols and a few numbers. I felt like writing to suggest they give me the password they'd like me to use and I'll use it.
This can only be thought up by some primary school dropout who, proud to be asked to do something well out of their intellectual level decided on a course of action even more stringent than that of the CIA if only to cover their backs.
Who CARES if my insurance quote becomes common knowledge and will I ever need my passport to wander into Boots for a quick look around?
We're being strangled by ever-more complicated access codes for no good reason other than stupidity.

woofgang: I found your post "ooooo touched a nerve did we?" interesting and quite telling, especially the 'we' at the end, almost as if you're one of a pack all looking for prey much the same as a pack of wolves. You listening Maydup?
Despite the growing trend to the illusion that privacy isn't important or even exists as a concept, it is vital. Thus passwords. You are able to get your PC to remember those you feel not important to you. So the present system is probably the best compromise until someone actually comes up with something better.

Meanwhile of course the Internet has not outlived it's usefulness. You can still find porn can't you ?

Dunno, can you? I'll take your word for that.
