Skip to comments.Obamacare website resets all passwords (leftists stuck in a type of authentication limbo)
Posted on 10/09/2013 3:38:20 PM PDT by Libloather
The presidents much touted health care plan continues to be plagued by embarrassing technical glitches, despite three years of preparation, the latest being where they are now resetting individual passwords.
It is now being reported that registrants are having to contact phone support after learning that all user passwords are being reset as part of a process to help resolve login issues with the site. Additionally, tech support is apparently telling some registrants they will have to completely reregister under a new username because their previously chosen names are stuck in a type of authentication limbo.
If the website problems persist, which all indications suggest that they will, into the near future it could prove extremely problematic for the Obama administration. While much has been focused on the public relations aspect of the failure of the site to meet expectations set by the president himself, there are real world practical considerations vital to the future of the law itself to be considered.

I sure do hope no one is just going on there and creating numerous phony accounts using random email addresses
You mean like hackers and spammers do ON EVERY OTHER OPEN SITE?
This boondoggle is a hacker's wet dream (tm).
1/2 baked applications are the norm, something on this scale is unprecendented. One should assume that all the data is replicated in servers all over the world, China only being one.
Knowing libs like we all know libs, a lot of them do not even need to call. All they need to do is ask.
So pretty much all of our health care is gonna be run by people who cannot even properly run the health care websites and have less proficiency at it than most computer science majors, is that what we are looking at?
The administrations gifts just don’t stop giving (/sarc vomit tag implied of course).
There’s a valid reason for this. It prepares them for the future mess they will experience when they actually need a doctor. You can think of this as their basic training. Trying to get help from a doctor will be like Advanced Individual Training (AIT). (Army)
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAhahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
And these people want to run the country?
Oh - wait... they do run the country!
and then you are going to get e mails at the lost logon e mail address
or worse, you can’t log on with a new name because that email address is already used
Perhaps all existing login ID’s and passwords (the few hundred of them) got wiped out over the weekend’s “repairs”.
Call the FUC*YO number for Tech support. If that even works.
Rube Goldberg has been outdone.
You read my mind!
This has been such a WONDERFUL week!!!
They need to check the WOM - Write Only Memory.
Have a nice day!
Back in the day when I was programming comms systems for the Norwegians, one of the sysadmins (social security) was instructed to “insert the floppy disc in the drive slot”. The system used 5 1/4 floppies for some updates.
He cut the disc off at the top with a pair of scissors and stuffed the content into the gap between drive and machine.
Interesting, thanks for informing me of this. As an aside, were the Norwegians capable of programming computers effectively and were they capable computer scientists or was it mostly just painful and unpleasant to work with them?
Once you ‘login’ they have you and all your life data FOREVER! Cuidado!
Just imagine being sent a monster tax bill that you didn't voluntarily sign up for. Oh, my.
“they will have to completely reregister under a new username because their previously chosen names are stuck in a type of authentication limbo...”
Well, now everyone can save their money and wait until they actually need coverage, and at that point say “I did register. Prove I didn’t.”
Lol, since I am a Norwegian myself, some of them are quite capable. I was a programmer at Norsk Data. But there are even more dumb communist liberals than Obama can muster.
Yeah....and using all the various combinations of Obama's names / social security numbers / addresses / birth dates /...etc
Not only will our healthcare be administered by people who cant set up a website, but the IRS will act vindictively as they do with the tax returns of non Obama supporters.
I guess they forgot to tell the users.
to help all you log in, we’e reset all your passwords. and haven’t told you the new passowrd.
your fedgov betters/overlords
call 1-800-f@ckyou for help.
I can’t begin to imagine how badly these sites are coded. Probably hundreds or thousand of people working on their own little sections, with very little standardization or oversight and then they attempted to cobble it all tougher.
So what do you estimate is the ratio of dumb, commie liberal Norwiegans to the intelligent, capable Norwiegans who can also think for themselves? If you had to guess what the ratio is?
They probably should have out sourced it to India...as all the “American” IT types working for the government seem to be either incompetent or security risks...
Ten to one, roughly. The US ratio is still a little better, I hope. If we cannot get zero out of there so I can move, I’m dead. And that’s not a joke, probably...
LMAO. They are having all of these troubles and the hackers haven’t even touched them yet,
Please re-register. Your old username and password have been reset but not deleted. Please select a new username. We will bill you twice. If you later decide that Obamacare is a mess and opt out, we will bill you twice and fine you.
You don’t mean suicide, do you? I heard that more people iN Europe are turning towards it, I hope that it is not a continent-wide phenomenon that is coming here to the States. And if not, what exactly do you mean by “I’m dead”?
Oh, I don’t expect to last forever under a marxist regime. They *are* actually capable of killing you, you know. Even though pretty wussified and stupider than bad clones of David Icke :).
This would be a lot more funny if it wasn’t so pitiful.
Let ‘er BURN!!!!
Should I start worrying for my health and safety too? At the moment, i am just a worker who hangs out and posts here. Should I be worried about being picked off? I think one good thing about Obama is that he is nowhere near as dedicated as Marxist leaders in the past have been; being a Hollywood socialite leader has been his main priority. I figure I have that going for me - for at least a few years anyway.
Which enforces a price structure that is exactly bass-ackward.
Only the government could conceive of such a scheme...
I have no idea where you are (although I suppose I could find out), so I really couldn’t say what level of enemies you might have. Depends what your sins are, I guess, and most of us are perfectly safe.
On the other hand, if you actually are in Egypt;), you might want to watch your step. Some dangerous people there.
Are you actually iN Egypt now? Are you just there to find work of some kind or is it Top Secret, if you are in fact n Egypt right now?
I admit to have always wanted to see Egypt as a tourist, but now, it seems, that calling that an unwise decision is putting it mildly.
And then there’s the one about the tech who got a call from a new computer user-—said his “coffee cup holder” fell off.
Tech asked if the coffee holder was a premium w/ purchase?
Seems the guy clicked open his CD disk drive and was using it as a coffee cup holder.
Well, to be fair, it’s actually 1-800-f1u-ckyo.
Well, obviously, the “only solution” is single payer through the government.
This is why they aren’t really concerned as to whether Obamacare works or not.
