But if simple 'remember me' for login was in force, it would enable a successful spambot to log in easily right? I do what Iversen does, hit x and x for both initial fields, which takes a couple of seconds, and then the actual login is like there was just a single log in step with security question.

I thought I was the only who can't login from the first attempt. Would be great to fix.
