Stupidity on the Internet

If average Joe/Jane are presented to a form on a web page, he or she will most probably fill it in incorrectly, even if all fields are clearly labeled...

First and last name, street, zip, city, country and phone number... how hard can that be... people still manage to add other info into the input boxes... they do not think about the fact that their info are processed by a computer, that don't understand and can't verify the multiple styles of ... say a phone number... I counted at least 10 styles...

I wish input boxes could have input masks (like in M$ Access), that were fully customizable to allow phone numbers and zips to be entered in only one style. Or barf on their input and have them re-enter everything that aren't correctly formatted...

I had to manually wade through 10k+ rows to correct entries... blah.
