Believe me when I say my chi is harnessed. If it wasn't, it would be taking advantage of being armed to the teeth.

You mean that if it was a company you considered registrering an account with because you needed their products and/or services, you'd refrain from doing so because of this?

And yes, if I thought a company had poor security implementations, then I would consider not using them... IF there are other options. Or maybe, because I know they are insecure, I could use a random generated password and then close the account when I have got what I need.
Better believe it. I am like that too. Currently I am registered at three websites total, one of them being CP. That might very well go down to only two very soon.

That alone is one reason why Mickeysoft will not sell very much to me again. They insist that I join their Mickeysoft Club, complete with an account, the Mickeysoft hat and the secret decoder ring. The problem is that I don't want to marry them and also am not interested in any other closer relationship with them.
