Things I Hate About the Web (#422)

You know what I hate about the web? Sites that make you sign up, with a username and password, and giving them your email address, just to download a stupid utility. Sure, they have the right to do it, but really? I mean, come on, just let me download the 48.1 kilobytes and be done with it.

It gets better, though, when they helpfully email your password back to you in a plain text message. Nice job!
