Long Live The Pencil

I don’t want to sound like a curmudgeon, but after speaking to an Apple Support person for forty minutes I am exhausted.
Give me a pencil and paper. Do away with passwords, security questions, and emails. Let’s return to the Pony Express era and letters sealed with wax.
Instead of enjoying the wild card game I am entrenched in verification emails, multiple verification emails, and requests to assure that I am who I say I am.
And who is the person on the other end of my computer who decrees whether my password is strong enough? Is there a troll sitting inside my computer? A tyrant who says—rejected, use numbers, symbols, at least two capitals and one lower case letter.
