Passwords

I complained once to paypal because it doesn't allow you to copy and paste passwords, either when creating one, or authenticating with one.

Their logic was that copy and pasting passwords is "insecure"

My passwords are 16 character pseudo random passwords, not something you want to be typing in!

Safe to say, I dont use Paypal anymore
