I guess I ought to send this one to The Daily WTF but I’ll post it here. The Lycos account creation procedure needs you to create a security question. Unfortunately it’s dictating that your dad’s name needs to be 6 characters or more. Because of course no names contain less than 6 characters…

Lycos form verification WTF

(name changed for security reasons!)

One of the other security questions offered, “where did you spend your last holiday” is stupid too -when the time comes to retrieve your lost password you now have to work out when you created the account and then try to remember where you went on holiday before???
