if we are putting a password to restrict people that can't type the word password we may as well put the same password on the rest of the forum or remove it. It's a stupid idea as it does nothing but put a step into getting into the section of the forum you want to get into.

 

If people are going to troll putting a password:password on the section is pointless.

 

People will still have their opinions if that section of the forum is secured (badly) or not.

Serves as a warning/disclaimer to tell people to relax in these forums.  Basically you are agreeing to respect others believes by typing in the password and to be an adult.  So you cannot say you have not been warned if something happens.

What about the current "Rule breaking has consequences; think before you post ? Community Rules" above the boxes where you type a response? If that is not enough putting a stupid password on the section will also have zero effect.

I think people should start using common sense. Cameron will block access to neowin otherwise.

How can a major technology forums such as Neowin use an easy to guess password? Don't you know about hackers and bad guys yet?
