A $4 to $1 grant of up to $7500. Where's the WTF? If I put in $100, they will put in $400. If I put in $1875 or more, they'll put in $7500.

What, does the submitter not understand the difference between a currency symbol and a variable-indicating prefix?

Could also be the other way around.

If you put in $400 they put in $100. If you put in $30,000 they put in $7,500.

Either way, still not a WTF

They're storing passwords the same way a lot of people did, in the days when there was a chance of someone using a browser older then IE 5.5.

I agree though: this is pretty *bleep* (not that you could have that as a password).

Those folks who say your password cannot contain SELECT are in desperate need of an education.

Usually when you try to 'splain technical things to these people, their eyes glaze over and their brains turn to brick. They need the issue presented to them in terms even a sales weasel can understand.

Something like "all our data has been deleted and since we have no backups there will be no further revenue coming in so you're all sacked." An attention getter, so to speak.

Anyone know somebody who could help these lusers see the light?
