Comment: I tried to register for your site, but therer was narry a mention of a password in the registration process. How do you expect me to log on without a password? Something i missed? Please let me know...

BTW, it's pretty disengenuous for you to use Gmail for your contact link, when none of us proles were offered the limited trial of the Gmail system. Please throw off that monkey, and use a real email service.

I think snopes has said in the past that this and similar threads don't have any real requirement for an e-mailís public display: it doesn't necessarily have to be mockable or humorous. I don't want to entirely assume snopes' motives, but perhaps he's showing it as an example of annoying impatience, of someone who hasn't read the FAQ regarding registration waiting periods.

It's funny when a person applies just before midnight on a weekend, then writes a few hours later and complains that "I registered yesterday and I haven't been approved yet" (and all this despite the fact that the registration instructions mailed to every registrant ask them to "please be patient while we review your profile").

It reminds me of one of my previous jobs when a lazy salesperson dropped a request into our group's "IN" basket well after hours one evening, then came in first thing the next morning and demanded, "When is this going to be taken care of? It's been sitting here for two days already!" When I responded by pointing out that she had only submitted it the previous evening, she replied, "Well ... yesterday and today, that's two days."

In any case, the proper form for asking such a question is to inquire how long registration approvals usually take, not to start off with a complaint without even having waited one day.

Comment: I need to find how to change my password to your site...

I will never remember the password you assigned me. Besides that is NOT my password. A password is a unique word or phrase that is know ONLY to the user and not to the person whose site it belongs to.

Please tell me where and how I can change the password you assigned.
