Comment Kind of like drug testing (Score 1) 550

I had one job offer that would have required me to take a drug test in order to take the job. While I knew that I would pass, I felt that it was something that I would never do for a job. I told the company that if my word that I don't do drugs was not good enough for them, then there was no point in hiring me. I walked away from the whole thing. Honestly, if you don't like the requirements to get the job, don't take the job.

This is an idea that Jef Raskin proposed in The Humane Interface. Not necessarily changing the key combination to hit, but forcing the user to type something that is in the dialog box. You may not want this type of dialog box for all dialog boxes, but it would certainly be useful for dialog boxes containing critical information.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
