Re: And they have a ludicrous mandatory weak password policy too
@handle: if you really are such a paranoid privacy freak that you really worry that there are people out there who would want to see all that information about you then I guess you have a problem - though trusting VM to keep secret your activities is not your biggest issue. Maybe you don't realise that pretty much anyone at VM can also see all that stuff and, horror of horrors, without even knowing your password!
And no you can't get your package changed without phoning them, or that's my experience anyway.
I never said that you can't use a high quality password if YOU want but I fail to see there is a need for VM to require their users create a complex password. Most users will not need it, and it just leads to more support calls for forgotten passwords, which in turn leads to easy password bypass.
