Every web site that is worth anything, I would hope, would not allow a large number of passwords attempts.Most websites are not worth anything.It can be deceptive. The best anti-hacking blocks will never inform you that you're being stopped by an anti-hacking block. After, say, the 5th time that you get the "invalid userid or password" message, you're actually being stopped by a "tried too many times" block but the message you get doesn't change.But it's true, quite a lot of websites with userids and passwords have pretty poor security. (Places with financial accounts have security audits. Places that take credit cards SHOULD have security audits, but don't necessarily. Amazon, I'd bet heavily, does; Joe's Crab Shack, not so sure.)
