PayPal Fail

PayPal recently allowed me to set a password that was longer than their maximum, then kept refusing my login, presumably because it was truncating my input before comparing hashes, so I had to jump through the hoops to reset it. I figured out the problem by trial and error.

On a related issue, the practice of the UI not telling you the password requirements until after you've typed one that doesn't meet them, is still rife, and still wasting people's time.
