Bad Password Policies

I was spending a Gift Certificate from Christmas 2006 (I’m not joking) and when I registered for, I got this:



The !@#$%^&*()-=`~[]{}\;:'”,<.>/? that I had in my password isn’t allowed?

I opted for a 19 character password with lower and upper case letters and numbers.

BUT STILL! This is not really acceptable IMO.

  1. Best Buy has been repairing my laptop since the end of October 2007. I have this expensive warranty that states “Best Buy will replace your item if it is serviced more than 3 times. My laptop has been sent in 9 times and remains to be un-repaired. They will not replace it. I have constantly been told it will be repaired. Since the onset of the feassco,they have broken the USB port, the power switch, and it is really dirty now. I have called explained this many times to there wonderful staff at 1888bestbuy and to any manager when they will talk to me at the store and I get the same reply: “We can’t replace it without approval” Who’s approval God himself… Anyway, I won’t go away, I am persistant. I will not purchase another item from them….
