    A welcome initiative! I especially hope that your FAQ, when it will be
    ready, will contain useful suggestions.

    I am really quite sick of those forms that, after I have specified my
    country is Italy, force me to fill in my "state"! I usually, have to select
    "Michigan", which has the same acronym ("MI") as the province of Milan. I
    hope I'll never move in the province of Florence, as there is no state in
    the US whose acronym is "FI"...

    Also, I hope they'll stop refusing forms where I haven't filled the "middle
    initial" field.
