Let's just say it is for now, because I have a complaint.

I just joined a website to get a logo designed on the cheap. When I did, I used my password manager / creator (C'YaPass>[^] gratuitous self-promo Shucks | :-\ ) to create a password, since I don't remember or type passwords any more.

Normally I like to make the passwords 64 chars long, but I figured the lame site might have a limitation so I cut it in half and made it 32. It said you need uppercase, and letters and numbers and I did all that.

Sign Up Worked
I created my password and signed up. It took my password and everything seemed fine.

Couldn't Sign In
Then I tried to sign in again and I couldn't. I pasted directly from my password manager but it didn't work. Hmmm??? I kept trying and then the the thought struck me.

I bet they do not allow over N characters. I guessed that the max might be 30, set my password manager to limit to 30, pasted it in and it worked.

Here's The Point
The ENTRY text box that I signed up on did not say, "max is 30" or anything. Instead it just took the first 30 chars and used them, but it didn't let me know that so I'm thinking something else is incorrect. Oy!!

Other Sites Do This Too
A bank site I use did this to me too. It allowed me to think it took N number of chars when I created the password, then wouldn't let me sign in. I finally guessed with that one too.
