GeneralWhat is the possible logic here? PinPopular

I was signing up to a website yesterday only to find that they had disabled pasting into the password and confirm password fields.

Not only that, but having completed the painful process of registering (they had also disabled auto-complete) I found that they also don't allow pasting into the username/password boxes at login time.

Personally I fail to see how any of this achieves anything beyond:

1) Making their website a complete pain in the bottom.

2) Encouraging people to use short and memorable passwords - which is surely not a good idea on a site that handles money.

Is there something that I'm missing here or is it simply a case of a dev team making some really, really bad UX decisions?
