When creating a new Stack Overflow account there was not a confirm field for the password, which is a good practice.
After first comments, I have to say the following:
- I agree that it is debatable
- To be more clear, when I signed up there were not second password field, show password option or something similar to be sure that password is correct typed. It is the first time when you choose the password, it's not about forgetting password or mistype login or recover it. In fact I suggest a simple verification, no matter how it is done, to be sure of what you entered. I haven't notice one.
