Thoughtless error of the day

Thoughtless awful UK extension e-mail error

This appeared upon me entering my e-mail address in on a site, despite me also entering my UK address and UK post code, and UK phone numbers.

Darn that Austrian domain name for uncovering my true foreign identity.

    I hate that problem, have had it myself too. Those systems always seem to find exactly the wrong things to check.

    Another classic is when you get declined access to, say, a banking site because your IP’s geo information for some reason doesn’t flag it as a UK address, despite you in fact being connected in the UK.

    Better or worse than the days of declining users based on their browser, resolution, or scripting preferences?
