Company which is exploring current technology  not just obey masses that
what internet is about ... if you run any company on the internet u know
that creativity is that what counts and making things easier 4 ppl is
part of their job as well.
This "feature" has been adopted because it was easy 4 ppl and saved them
time increasing there productivity. Unfortunately sometimes increasing
of productivity means decreasing level of security and we might get such
setbacks but it's not reason to not go forward.
