This is the conundrum faced when personal responsibility is rejected in favor of having someone else handhold us though processes constantly.

Well meaning coders attempt to prevent someone from copying a incorrectly entered password in the first field into the verification field with these sort of measures. Why? To protect us from ourselves! If we were, to stupid to do such a thing then I guess we'd deserve not knowing what we entered for the password and having to reset it later right (at least that is the way I feel about it).

I agree, most users a going to fall on either side of that scenario where they might copy the bad password into the verification field. Instead the more novice user will actually type both fields content manually; where as the more advanced user will be working from a password generator or create a complex password, copy it to a safe then to the verification field.

It is one of the massive mistakes of our world to think that we can code correct the human flaw. We cannot. We can only provide for a means for them to resolve their error after the fact with a reset. To do anything else only frustrates the bulk of the user base.
