Passwords


I just received this email round robin - co-incidentally from my brother Round Robin in southern France and thought I would share it with my long-suffering blog visitors (all three of them):-

Please enter your new password:

  1. THINGS TO BEWARE OF...........

    There are things that Christians and non-Christians alike should beware of....

    1 Timothy 4:1-3 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 buy means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron, 3 men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.

    BEWARE OF THOSE WHO FORBID MARRIAGE AND IMPOSE DIETARY RESTRICTIONS AS TENETS OF THEIR FAITH.

    2 Thessalonians 2:8-9 Then the lawless one....9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,

    BEWARE OF SO-CALLED CONTEMPORARY MIRACLE WORKERS.

    Matthew 24:24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.

    BEWARE OF MEN CLAIMING TO BE CHRIST OR MODERN-DAY PROPHETS.

    2 Corinthians 11:4-14 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully......13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. 14 No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

    BEWARE OF THOSE WHO PERVERT JESUS AND THE GOSPEL PLAN OF SALVATION.

    2 Peter 3:10-17 ......16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness,

    BEWARE OF UNTAUGHT, UNSTABLE, AND UNPRINCIPLED MEN.

    The best way to avoid error is to know the TRUTH.

    THE WAY TO KNOW THE TRUTH IS BY PRAYERFULLY SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES.

    2. Here I was, reading through the whole lot because I expected it to erupt into a highly comical bit of writing about passwords... or round robins, for that matter. And what did I get?

      Oh, by the way, Mr. Finnell forgot to say BEWARE OF THOSE WHO URSURP SOMEONE ELSE'S BLOG WITH COMMENTS THAT HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE POST.
      On the other hand, he already said to beware of unstable men, so...

    3. So I take it that Steve Finnell hasn't persuaded you to become a nun then Arian? Let's hope that he displeases The Lord and is struck down by a thunderbolt!

    4. I quite like Steve the new apostle. I'm impressed with how much of the gospels he knows....Is he correct or is he one of those?

  2. Yes and The National Westminster Bank owned by the crooked RBS let me type in either upper or lower case letters. They call them capitols and normal.
    Isn't it fun. They want the x, y, z or a, b, c numbers or alphabet letters on a sixteen digit password. Daft when I can buy a book on Amazon with one click and cannot recall my Amazon pass word. If Amazon can do it surely the banks can.
    I have never had a bad invoice from Amazon. If they started a bank I'd think seriously of using them.

    1. Yes but you'd need a canoe to paddle up that great river if you ever needed to talk to your bank manager.

  3. WTF? Who is the guy with the Jesus sandals?

    1. Nowt to do with me Mollykins, he's one of those occasional blanket invaders. I could delete that tosh but I think I will leave it for the amusement of other visitors. It's probably funnier than my post!

  4. Frances Garrood (I believe you know her blog?) has written about passwords sometime last year.
    It is a topic I come across regularly in my job; we even write Password Regulations for our customers (for instance, an insurance company with 1.200 employees). But we never ask them to use 16-digit passwords! In short, we ask them to use common sense, which sadly seems to have gone out of fashion a while ago.

    1. Eh? What is common sense? Never heard of it. Is it what common people have? In that case I have uncommon sense.

  5. All very valid error messages for password protection except the last three YP. Of course if Steve had to prove he wasn't a "bot" he would be stuck up Adrian's Amazon without a paddle.

    1. Thank The Lord (Praise him! Praise him!) that you inserted the word "Amazon" after "Adrian's" and not the A word I was expecting!

  6. Hard to say which is funnier, the actual post or the rant from the blog invader.

    1. Saint Steve of "A Christian View" presents himself as a mouthpiece of The Lord but he has forgotten the eleventh commandment - "Thou shalt not spam other bloggers' blogs with pompous religious poppycock"

  9. I am regularly astonished by how unseriously people take passwords and then wonder why they are hacked. I have amassed over the years nearly 200 different websites which required a log-in password and which are still technically live even if I don't visit them. (Most people would be surprised how many such websites they have.) I used a vast array of different passwords but never used the ones with which I protect things like bank accounts and my computers (all of which have different and very or relatively secure passwords). I have gradually gone through them and deleted old ones and updated all current ones with a new and secure password. It's easy because I use an app called 1Password. You don't have to do that though. One trick is to think of a sentence you know by heart: "Thou art lost and gone for ever oh my darling Clementine" for example could become TaLaGfEoMdC. Add in a couple of numbers eg Ta3LaGfE9oMdC and you have a memorable very secure password which is unlikely to be broken by even a fairly sophisticated programme which can break any password consisting of a word appearing in any dictionary or a placename on Google earth.

    OK you weren't being serious but, hey, I haven't had my lunch yet and the afternoon's my silly period.

    1. Given my last sentence the time shown on the post is strange. It was 0328 (UK BST) and 1428 (NZ standard time and the time shown on my computer). So to what does the 1528 (ie 3.28pm) relate?
