CHAT: Secret questions - need to went some anger ...

Remember the thread some weeks ago about people using their conlangs for
secret questions and answers for retrieving lost passwords?

Today, a site I've got an account at changed their secret-question system so
that instead of writing in a question of your own choice (I of course had
one in Tairezazh) you have to chose between a variety of idiot questions
like "In what city was I born in?" or "What was the last name of my
favourite teacher?". And the claimed reason for this is increased security!
Are safety managers paid for being stupid these days, or just desperate to
grant your family access to your account?!?
