    What the heck, I'm bored so here goes.

    First Name? During the summer I worked with an American dude who had trouble pronouncing my real name in a way that didn't sound crass (his words, not mine), so in the spirit of some semblance of anonymity let's say "Steve", as he liked to call me.

    Do you have pets? Currently no, but I dream of having a dog. Or several.

    How many hours a day do you spend on the computer? 4-6. Depends heavily on the day, though. Sometimes zero, sometimes much, much more.

    How many computers do you own? 1

    What is your favorite color?
    Black, or dark gray

    What kind of music do you like? There's something good in all genres, but currently some heavier stuff. Today's playlist has had some Kyuss, Sleep, Marduk and Triptykon on it, to name a few.

    What are your goals? To have fun, be a source of joy to those close to me and take care of my responsibilities.

    Who are your heroes? Currently none. Loads of people I respect, though, for various reasons.

    What kind of sports are you into?
    I used to like to play soccer, but those days are sadly long gone. If pool counts, then that.

    Do you have any piercings?
    Not per se, but I have stepped on a nail once if that counts.

    Left hand or right handed?
    Right

    Any tattoo's?
    Not yet. Maybe never will. Time will tell.

    Do you enjoy PC, Console games or mobile games?
    No, no and no. Games played with others at pubs and other such gatherings? Yes.

    What are your fav games? Trivial Pursuit and others like it. Tried to learn Carcassonne, but my friend got tired of me not getting the hang of it and in the best interest of our friendship we agreed to forget about it. I don't blame him.

    Married? Nope

    Have kids? Nope

    What languages do you speak? Finnish, English, (some) Spanish, Swedish, German

    How many keys are on your keyring? Too many, at last count 17.

    What is your favorite beverage? Water and Gin & Tonic

    What is your hair color? Bald? Bald.

    For the OP if you are going to ask for a First Name, you should volunteer one, even if it is fake, not your forum handle. :)

    Agreed.

    Or, change the question, to something on the lines of "name by which you wish to be known".

    There are reasons most of us use forum handles; personally, I consider it intrusive for someone to ask me my name - even my first name - on an anonymous online forum.

    You give real answers to those? o_O

    Just make them up and store them or use a password generator. Then just treat the questions as a long password for the generator.

    This right here. Obviously no one would put real answers in those. Personally, I put my first pet (a fish named Arnold) as my favorite hobby, "a bucket of gold" as the road I grew up on and "mustache" as my favorite elementary school teacher.

    Wait, oh crap...

    Well, of course, that's the most secure way to deal with this annoyance.

    But making them up or using a password generator of course defeats the very purpose.

    The whole idea is to have something that only you know, but is easy to remember.

    I don't know of any site that uses these annoying security questions that suggests that you use anything but real answers.

    The worst part of it is, if you play along, you are giving ammunition to crooked site owners or hackers that get in and can see the security question answers.

    That's a decent approach - make up something funny or odd that still in some way answers the question, so might still be easily remembered.

    The best approach - nobody should ask these questions. If a user loses their password, you have to go to old-fashioned techniques. Send us a copy of your driver's license. Write a letter and have it notarized. Send us a selfie. Etc. It's harder work for the company of course. Which is why they use these stupid security questions, which are the most egregious security problem on sites that use them.

    ----
    As stupid as this are the ones that show some picture and/or phrase, and you have to say yes/no this is right. It's silly. It assumes that most people if they see the wrong image or phrase, they will politely not continue with login, and say "oh, gracious, that's not my account, I'm getting out here!"

    I've found that most of the time people still get the answers wrong. When they answered correctly. They'll forget something like they put ave instead of avenue in a street name, favorite movie changes, &c. Easy to remember may work in theory but often fails in practice. Record everything. A password manager is easier since it syncs and can autofill. An encrypted spreadsheet is a decent alternative.

    While I don't believe the OP meant any harm, you bring up a excellent point. Many of these very questions are the ones often found in account security and recovery. And far too often, people answer them honestly, which makes it a lot easier for the "Death Star" to find and attack.

    Touché; bravo.


    A long time poster, someone I have "known" online for some time (even years) asking this, on such a forum, I am fine with it, and don't doubt their bona fides.

    However, I will concede that my spidey sense quivers when a first time poster opens an account with such a post.
