    This is my biggest complaint. A few years back I had someone in Australia buy plain tickets online and used my email address. I got the info about the account and tickets, did a password reset request and got into the account and canceled the tickets. I sure hope they had a hard time when they showed up at the airport.

    Verification emails should be sent on all new account creations and when signing up for any mailing list. Clearly the latter won't happen because companies want the emails to go to someone, they don't care who.

    Plain tickets? How gauche! If only it had been fancy tickets instead...

Once it hits the fan, the only rational choice is to sweep it up, package it, and sell it as fertilizer.
