When you request a temporary password, they send you something full of number ones (1), the capital letter i (I), and small case Ls (l).

Then when you start trying out the possibilities they lock you out because you tried too many times!

In some fonts those characters are all the same. In my current font 1 (one) has a serif, but l (lower case L) and I (Upper case i) are the same.

Here you go:
lIl - these are 2 different characters. Not on my Phone, or browser.

On my phone where I'm trying to read the password (to type into my computer) they are all the same and they sent me this as a password:

l17WlS6E or possibly II7WlS6E or 1l7WIS6E or,...

AAARRRGGGHHH

On my computer I'd paste it into something I where I can change the font or paste it directly into the browser, but I don't have my email on this computer and my phone has only the one font.

Ok, enough typing. I'll CALL them - on Sunday. Let's see if it works.

I killed enough time typing the above message and requested a new temporary password and they sent me one with zeros (0) and the capital letter o (O). At least they are a little different. Zero has flat sides in this font.

Come on folks, dissallow O, 0, 1, l, I, |, !.  I added split bar and exclamation point. You can see the difference in most fonts but have to look close sometimes.

other pet peeves: People who they think they know stuff, but don't and try and intelligently talk about stuff they don't know. They spit when they talk and they all have anger managment problems. They are extremeley imature and make bad jokes. They take everything too far, (ex. you say something sarcastically and they talk for about 10 minutes about it). They do extremeley stupid things and arn't street smart. AKA the nerds in my school.
