I saw that some have said that the double email entry process (to minimize
email errors) is stupid and should stop since copying and pasting between
fields can pass the error to the second field. The problem is that wheover
implemented the solution that way has caused it to be useless- the correct
way to implement this is to not allow pasting into the the fields and force
users to enter it manually twice.

And what about those of us users who utilize our browser's autofill
feature so that we don't have to repeatedly type in information? Will
it block that too?

The World is not set up to facilitate the best
any more than it is set up to facilitate the worst.
It doesn't depend on brilliance or innovation
because if it did, the system would be unpredictable.
It requires averages and predictables.

So, good deeds and brilliant ideas go against the
grain of the social contract almost by definition.
They will be challenged and will require
enormous effort to succeed.

Most fail.
