Whenever I choose a password, of course I try to post clues about it on a public forum.

No, ●●●●●●● is Lalit's password, pasted by EFH.
Yours is ●●●●●●●.
Although I remember an application once that masked the password, but you could copy the '*'s and paste them in a text document to reveal them! True story.

If I would ever register to a social networking website, which I never will, I'd use whatever password KeePass would see fit to generate, I guess...

In that case you must have to change your password frequently

I use the middle finger as my password for social networking and for other sites too. I really mean it. If you look at the newer laptops such as the Thinkpad T43, they have a finger print reader and also an application such as password manager that allows you to use your finger for signing on to your laptop and for other applications/web sites. Of course the password manager stores the real social network site password and associates it appropriately to the middle finger.

So, when you sign in, you need to.... umm...... gesture to the internet?

I make gestures to the internet when my browser crashes, I have a slow connection, or when I get a virus.
Sometimes also when I am looking for something really important and google returns broken links and spam search results.

Anyway....
So you mean password means it should be something secret? I thought it just meant to type the word 'password'... you know... like a captcha.


When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
