Your password will soon expire

Proving that the Defense Information Systems Agency doesn't have a monopoly on boneheaded IT stuff, I have the following tale to entertain one and all.
Just got an email telling me my password to a site with the Navy is due to expire soon. I go to the site, type in what I think is my password, and find that I have totally forgotten my password to this site. Go to the FAQ to find out how to retrieve the password, and I'm told to contact my registrar, who is listed on a linked document. That document, as you may have guessed, requires my password to access. Huh? "Don't have your password? Well, just type in your password and we'll give it to you." Bright folks, wonder if they ever tried following their own instructions...
