    [quote user="morbiuswilters"]That doesn't actually explain why they make you uppercase the password yourself (no uppercase function in their language?) and only on the first time.[/quote]  Did you miss that part about "It's a mindset"?  Passwords are UPPERCASE.  "But we can let people enter lower ...
