Password security

Hats off to Moshtix for putting in the effort to make a clean and usable signup process that clearly explains things. Interesting advice on password security, though:

"This allows you access your profile next time you buy tickets. Tip: mum's maiden/pet/child's name are easy to remember."

Perhaps they think people who go to gigs are likely to have a below average brain cell count.

EDIT: They let you store credit card details in your profile, making the advice about choosing an easy password particularly concerning.
