comment Will the cookies crumble when it comes to proxy servers?
Most proxies do not exist to provide anonymity, instead they are used as security devices to filter traffic and protect the users behind them. Some are used to keep an eye on user traffic, so the opposite of anonymity.

comment Is there a strong reason to salt and hash passwords when password reuse is not an issue?
People care about any password @Izam. The press don't know the difference between a user password and an API password, and neither do the majority of people. They see passwords unsecured and that's it.

comment The old lady at my local city hall refuses my email because it does not contain my complete full name (with middle name) before the @. What can I do?
This isn't an information security question, not sure if there's a stackexchange site for dealing with idiotic government workers. This old lady is full of it, email addresses are not considered identification and you are free to use any you want. Go back and talk to a manager.

comment Longer passwords v/s Password Composition Rule
People want simplicity, it's hard to remember a short, complex password. It's easier to remember a long passphrase that has less complexity, using that type of system will have less people trying to use 16 single characters as a work-around. It's a training issue more than anything, you need to promote it.

comment Apply SSL for domain that I do not own
That's a good idea @Philipp, and the way to go unless the dev server needs to be externally accessible by a large group.
