And that would be David WHO, exactly? And what is his email address?
Because I, for one, am really tired of this sort of irritant.

It does not stop me from doing what I want to do. It just makes it more difficult and time-consuming. It does not actually enhance security in any meaningful way. And it disrespects me by implying that I effectively do not have the brains to come in out of the rain. And it disrespects every person who wrote the GUI code which you implicitly claim is insecure.

        Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
         I may wish to offend you again in the future.
