comment How much color may a UI have?
@VitalyMijiritsky - Jakob Nielsen wrote an article to this effect titled, "Don't Listen to Users". The title is slightly more extreme than the actual content, but it's still a good read... useit.com/alertbox/20010805.html I think one of the lessons here is that you shouldn't blindly follow your users' proposed solutions. When talking to your users it's more important to find out what works and what doesn't, and then you can figure out the best solutions.

comment Why should we ask the password twice during registration?
This is fine but at some point a returning user may like to change their password to something they'll remember. And then we face the same problem for the change password dialog. Do we force the user to type their new password twice, or just once?

comment Why should we ask the password twice during registration?
@BenBrocka - I agree, if you're typing fast it's hard to see every letter as you type it. But I do like how it solves certain problems without requiring the user to read and follow additional instructions, or toggle any options.

comment Why should we ask the password twice during registration?
@webvitaly - Yeah, I liked that approach as well. I can definitely see pros and cons of each.

comment Yes/No radio buttons: Vertical or horizontal
@JimmyBreck-McKye - The decision becomes harder at that point. I could see that becoming a good reason to make everything vertically aligned. But I've worked on multi-page forms where the Yes/No questions compose the overwhelming majority of the radio button based questions. So I'll still arrange them horizontally, and the few questions with 3 or more options might be vertically aligned. If spacing is used correctly, then this inconsistency won't necessarily be a problem. Everything can still be clear to the user.

comment Yes/No radio buttons: Vertical or horizontal
In general what I've found is that if you're dealing with enough options that you're going to have a problem with wrapping you should absolutely use a vertical layout as you say. But in the case of a simple Yes/No response, I prefer the options to be horizontal and aligned from question to question.

comment Yes/No radio buttons: Vertical or horizontal
I agree. I've created hundreds of Yes/No questions for insurance applications and this is the conclusion I came up with as well. The only difference is that in my case I position the radio buttons to the right of the question. But either way works well.
