This likely only happened because you were in the boondocks. We just moved back to the States from two years in London. It took forever to get a current account (checking) set up when we first moved to England, so we lived on our US Capital One card (no ForEx charges) for nearly a month. We were never once hassled for using a non CnP card-- everyone knew to swipe it. I don't recall ever having to give my post code the whole time I was there either.

On topic, I think CnP has to be more secure than swipe and keyboard pin as used for debit card transactions in the US. Seems like it would be trivial to skim the stripe data and the pin pads are not private at all.
