Cybercondrics and paranoia

the net has become a paradise for hypochondriacs,
that they call them.
I wonder if the responsible for
the web site of the Norwegian mobile operator Telenordic
can be called some kind of hypochondriacs, at least it seems like they draw
very hasty, and incorrect, conclusions from the information they receive.
The screen above shows up if you enter the wrong personal number and tries to go back in the browser history and tries to fix it, or if you, like me, enters the correct personal number but happens to come from an IP address that have already placed an order.
A slightly over-the-top reaction, I think, even if methods of abusing ordering sites to access personal information have been mentioned in media lately. But does it really do any harm if someone knows my personal number, it is hardly a secret.
