The Blurst.com registration page tells me my (12-character) password is too long, while a string of 100 A's is OK. FFF is a fine password, but 777 is too long. What gives? (Somewhat long but delightfully pattern-y description follows) [more inside]

"This Wu album is PHAT!"

When I was 12, I did a good number of product reviews on Amazon. 10 years later, I'm embarrassed that someone might find my glowing reviews of (ugh) Eminem and Smash Mouth.

NO RECOLLECTION WHATSOEVER. What can I do to get that account deleted? [more inside]
