Don't you just hate it when this happens?

How many times have you made an account for something, then ended up forgetting the password for it? This has been happening to me a lot lately, getting pretty annoying. Has this ever happened to you before, and if so, how often does it happen?

For me, it's been a problem fairly often. It gets annoying when the site sends you the password, but then you can't access the e-mail account as well, which has happened to me quite a few times (for the same site).

As of now, I'm very irritated about the fact that the site reset my password, account ID, and PIN number, but sent it to an e-mail address that I no longer have access to for two reasons. One, it requires a subscription, which my family doesn't really want to pay, since there are other e-mail websites. Two, my family recieves its Internet connection from another source, so we stopped using that one.

To everyone who I didn't post a response to: No, I didn't forget about you, and I did read them. I just didn't really have anything to say, so I just chose not to respond, so don't think I hate you, I'm ignoring you, or anything along those lines. I'll write up a response sooner or later.

WHAT THE FUCK. TRUTH'S COUSIN? HOLY SHIT I LIVE ONTHE WEST COAST AND I'M PRETTY SURE I HAVE NO RELATION UNLESS HE IS CONNECTED TO MY FAMILY AND I NEVER NEW ABOUT HIM.

Er, why are you telling ME this? Go post this on AzN's "Truth" post.

Besides, I was just kidding. AzN said you two could've been related, so I just randomly said that.

Also, ALL CAPS posts will be deleted without me bothering to read them, unless it's related to the post (for instance, the post itself is all caps). This applies to everyone.

Yeah, I forgot passwords for some of my various accounts...

Sucks.

mrbobbyjoe responds:

I bet your memory is better than mine though. I've forgotten the user name/ID, password, or PIN number for over 20 or so accounts.

haha sorry mate. Yeah I hate that a well Especially when you have over 3 emails and you forget about one and your password... as disaster.

mrbobbyjoe responds:

Yeah, forgetting e-mail account passwords is one of the worst ones. You have no absolutely no access to anything that someone sends you if it's automated.

what was the website?

(Updated ) mrbobbyjoe responds:

The one that I forgot the password for and got a new one sent to the e-mail address, I'd rather not say. I will tell you that it's for a game though. The e-mail site that the password was sent to was cox.net.

cox=cocks=porn? Don't tell me...

Meh, happened a few times. like 5 a long time ago. I had like 6 neopets accounts. I was in the second grade btw.

(Updated ) mrbobbyjoe responds:

Er, no. It's Cox Communications, I suppose you could call it an Internet providing company. You silly, perverted little person. I can tell how you got to that though, since they sound the same.

And I used to have a Neopets account (still do, but I don't use it) in like 3rd grade. Ah, those days were the best. Nearly no homework or projects, easy tests and quizzes, free time all day...

Why does it matter? So all posts on here have to be serious and have to pertain to your blog? I don't see why that would matter, and it's more convenient to message you on the blog.

OH WOW, I have "Princess" in my name, sure doesn't mean I'm kidding if I have that in my name! TAKE A GODDAMN JOKE, ASSHOLE.

(Updated ) mrbobbyjoe responds:

Because if it's not serious, it could be something talked about somewhere else. And they don't have to be serious, they just have to be somewhat related to the topic. If it's not related to the topic, I'd rather see it in a PM.

I don't understand this second part. How is it a joke if you have the word "Princess" in your name? Is it a joke that I have "bobby" in my name?

try writing down your passwords on some paper. you welcome

(Updated ) mrbobbyjoe responds:

I have actually tried that before, since when I first made accounts (back when I was around 7 or 8), I followed the suggestions of writing them down. Only thing is, I was pretty unorganized (and still am), so I lost it within a week. So yeah, not going to try that again. My parents also go around my room and throw away things that they think is just garbage.

I just use the same few passwords (or variants thereof) for everything, and, failing that, write them down, it works, it's effective, and no-one can guess them except for this guy: http://www.animalcrossingcommunity.co m/Topic/310058/1/Hybrid_Guide_Updated _4_25_06

(Updated ) mrbobbyjoe responds:

I use passwords that are all the same nowadays, but back when I made the account I had like 10 or 15 different passwords (and it was pretty annoying trying to match up the passwords with the accounts when I got older). And like I said, if I write them down, my parents will probably see it and think it's gibberish, then throw it away. They have an odd knack for being able to find papers that I like to hide.

Random link by the way.
