Blasted Slashdot! Apparently the profile link to "New Here" no longer works.

Which is why they offer the passcode option for something longer.
For Android, depending on ROM, the pin can get insanely long and you're pretty much boned.
You need a ROM to get a long passcode? LOL. You can have an "insanely long" passcode in iOS simply by disabling the "simple passcode" option. I just typed in over 100 alphanumeric characters and it was still letting me type more when I stopped.

In which fantasy land? "Society" has and still does uphold unjust laws all the time. What you describe is a tyranny of the majority.

Many of them are already industry lawyers to begin with.
