Weird registration failure at AOL

Well. Netscape Mail is no more. I'm not sure there'll be a lot of mourning of its passage, but I still used it for the occasional mailing list. AOL has merged it into AIM mail. When I tried to log in today, I got the registration screen shown here.

I hate passwords as much as the next guy, but isn't this stupid? Maybe I'm particularly disloyal, but my favorite song, town, food and book change from time to time. I don't think they'd be a super good way to recover a lost password.

But, it's nice to see people thinking outside the box.
