How I learned to stop worrying and love Mr asdf asdf

I find it vaguely offensive and fairly annoying that "customers" who come to download a free trial of our software, or free documentation, or free books, find it necessary to input abusive language in the registration form.

In that context "asdf asdf" and "test@test.com" become almost welcome bits of garbage.

The fact that the person would think that far ahead to know that someone like me will be looking through the leads and read their insults, makes me think they are more than a bit asocial.

Just for the record, the only "required" bits in the entire form are email and the name, and we always respect unsubscribe requests.
