The need to have a simple form for signups

The Slow as Molasses Press

I Googled the following:
"routine way of signing up for anything"
and ended up with a page on fitness
Who is minding the store
My intent was and is to underline
the need to have a simple form for signups
that is common to every site
that wants you to be part of it
What is reasonable 
would be
REAL NAME
REAL EMAIL
(email as username by default)
and a unique password
That's all
Whatever the form is 
it should be
common 
All the other stuff these sites want
should be optional
and have nothing to do with
signing up
Finally I flatly refuse
to use my mobile phone address
for a simple reason
I do not want anyone
calling me period
My mobile phone use is not
related to getting calls
There it is



NO ONE WILL FOLLOW THIS ADVICE
until someone comes up with
a Facebook-like
method which
turns out to be as 
onerous
as the profusion of
diverse ways
of joining things
that assumes we will be
charmed by another different
bit of legerdemain
IXNAY
NO WAY
Simplify or die
