I'd love to hear the 'logic' from the devs themselves.

It will almost certainly be some variation of "because our PHB told us we had to".

This isn't a feature some dev has decided to add on their own initiative. It's a management-level decision that's been forced on the devs, because it's what other sites in the sector are doing, so therefore it must be the right thing to do.

If you ever query it with the customer support drones, you'll be told it's to increase the security of the site, and they'd "lose their certification" if they changed it. D'Oh! | :doh:
