I just have to respond to this, I hate forums or anything else that
required the use of PASSWORDS!!!  I already have 10 times too many
passwords to remember or keep track of and I want absolutely NO more. Frankly I wish the entire computer and software industry would flush the
whole idea of passwords down the loo and come up with something else

How else would one prevent bots from joining the lists and spamming them
? If you want an example, of how bad it has become, join a usenet
newsgroup and see how much crud gets posted on it.
How else would one provide a given user a modicum of security and
identification ?
I don't know offhand, but the geniuses in the computer and software industries need to find a better way. Passwords are NOT the answer.
