    Seems like somebody forgot to attend the GUI course back in school... or more likely just ignored it and went ahead with whatever structure seemed good to them.

    As for a refund, that would be considered fast when in contact with certain organisations and/or states.

    Yahoo have forgotten some buttons. If only they had "Submit this form insecurely" for people with insufficiently long security details.

    TRWTF was that Arnold's first name was fuzzed out in the screenshot.

    The router does well with the bounding of its link tag as well. And the gentle "you [i]could[i] click".

    The Battlefield one is running under Wine, so it my be a bug due to that.

    And that would make it alright to produce three...four...five, WTF??? SEVEN buttons in one form??? Its not like Wine just "feels" like adding buttons. Wine: -Oh lets throw in a couple of extra buttons here they are always nice

    Funnily enough I have just decided this minute to not do that again.

    Translated, the buttons on the BF2 dialog are: Yes, No, OK, Abort, Abortion, Repeat, Ignore. Now... if only they had added a question to which one must answer... Also not sure why you have 2 abort options and how they will have a different effect.

    The Yahoo one is not a WTF. They just want him to use a different security question which has an answer of at least 4 characters.

    The abortion button is obviously for those unintended BF2 pregnacies... You know everyone gets those from time to time if you play BF2...

    That's why it's a WTF. Imagine if it told you your name was too short/too long for it's database, kind of like that.

    BTW, I have had that happen to me, I used my nickname as a first name but it was denied for being two letters long. (AJ)

    Actually it's "Cancel". MS decided to neglect the difference between canceling and aborting in the German version of Windows.

  • SarcasmFTW (unregistered) in reply to Andrew

    I had my answer declined because it didn't match the question, which is how I always answer those things, waste of time in my opinion. Damn Yahoo.

    It's the German version of: Yes, No, OK, Cancel, Abort, Retry, Ignore (aka Fail). i.e. all the buttons that a standard message box can choose from, at the same time.

    Wrong. By that time we will use cubic time, because it's the one and only real representation of time.

    So much better than a dating website I once signed up for. It thinks that the reason I didn't sign in recently might be because I forgot my password so it sends it to me! IN A EMAIL! IN PLAIN TEXT! ONCE A WEEK!

    Personally I'd prefer ***** to how that site does business, I changed my password to "plaintext" after the second email.

    It's not that it's too short for the database. It's that it's so insecure to brute force. THe problem is pretty much any answer to any of these questions are trivial to brute force anyways...

    I feel super cool for getting the bash.org reference without needing the link.

  • Mark Wilden (unregistered)

    Two points:

    1. Error'ds that show an impossible date or number are getting pretty stale. They're not funny anymore.

    2. People who slavishly need to answer security questions with the precise answer don't really get the point. (Hint: You can type anything you want. They don't actually check the accuracy of your answer.)

    Those who abandon the path are evil. Great holy armies shall be gathered and trained to fight all who embrace evil. In the name of the gods, ships shall be built to carry our warriors out amongst the stars and we will spread Origin to all the unbelievers. The power of the Ori will be felt far and wide and the wicked shall be vanquished. Glorious are the Ori, who lead us to salvation, who did fight the evil that would doom us all to mortal sin. Did they defeat the old spirits and cast them out? And now, with the strength of our will, they do call upon us to prevail against the corruption of all unbelievers. Truth is elusive to those who refuse to see with both eyes. Fear not the Ori, fear the darkness that would conceal the knowledge of the universe. Believe in the truth of all things, and you too may find the path to enlightenment. The Ori do not shield this knowledge as others might, selfish in their powerful advantage. They lead you to their realm with the path that is laid out in the book of Origin. All you need do is follow their teachings.

    Perhaps the United Kingdom of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Wisconsin will have adopted the month/day/year date format by 9999 after someone from Wisconsin got elected Prime Minister. That would make 12/31/9999 simply December 31st.

    maybe not show the entire reminder at the bottom of the page if it wasn't going to disclose all of the information in the first place? I think that the password WAS ******* which was used to make it look like a wtf?

  • Earl Purple (cs)

    The real WTF is that yahoo think that entering information that will let others guess or even work out your password give you extra "security". And that anyone actually tries to enter the true information for that rather than just enter another password, which is what I do in situations.

    So I have my mother's maiden name being something weird like Fowiheoirh, etc. (with numbers and symbols too if the system allows)
