Accept? How about demand?

My Canadian bank still has passwords that are not case sensitive and does not allow "special" characters.

When I last complained, three years ago, they argued, with a straight face, that allowing these would confuse customers.

And yes, the challenge question when you phone them is still my mother's "maiden" name.
