Why does everyone think toms is some sort of "bypass password" sanctuary?

WE.DO.NOT.DO.THAT.STOP.ASKING.

Can we please just auto ban anyone that posts with the word "Password" in any starting post of any OS'es security section?

He is asking a question that has been asked 20 thousand times. It starts to get annoying after a while. We simply CANNOT help him with resetting a password at all. There is a sticky at the top of this section that explains how to reset an admin password, other than that sticky this whole "reset password" gets into legal gray area pretty fast.

Its against the forum rules to post anything regarding bypassing any sort of security measures.

Take a look at the rest of this section and see how many times its been posted. I've counted 4 without even scrolling down.

You can't "Recover" the original password because it is not stored, only a hash code generated FROM the original password is stored; storing the original password would make it useless as a form of protection.

mouse24 is correct. These types of posts enter legal gray area that we would rather not wander in to. We won't be automatically banning people for them, but if everyone could please report these types of threads when they show up so they can be dealt with, the moderation team would really appreciate it. As much as we would love to be able to, we can't catch all of them ourselves.
