Subject: Registration SHIT!

Holy Crap! Have spent 45 minutes trying SIMPLY to choose a new password. Username = G**g. Old Password =********. Have tried and tried and tried. What the hell is the numeric solution to this equation: III - X = __________???? Why the hell are you using ROMAN NUMERALS. This is bull shit. Third time I have had to go through this crap on ***.com. Have NEVER encountered this kind of bull on ANY forum. About done with this forum. HURRY UP AND RESPOND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

My response:
Your password has been reset to "password." Please try logging in, and if successful, reset your password for security reasons. We are always happy to help our forum members and ask that you speak to us with courtesy and respect.

Hahaha! People are just so stupid! You really were so nice back to him! Maybe you should have been ruder in emails earlier....maybe they would have taken away that responsibility earlier. :) Maybe that's what Kristen should do!!!
