Stop resetting your passwords, says UK govt's spy network

In 2002 I had to phone Virgin customer service about my dialup connection. I was asked by the female customer service agent for my password, she was laughing whilst I dithered.

I glowed bright red, almost lost the power of speech, nearly hung up and considered never using the internet ever again...

I bit the bullet and said "pu**ylips". I've never used a rude password ever since.

Thank gawd they no longer ask for passwords, because of security of course.

edit: it may have been NTL
