I like the HAL approach from Microsoft's IE

HAL, the computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey is famously subservient whilst he is being very directive - "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that." (Wikiquote)

HAL seems to have infiltrated Internet Explorer but is staying clear of Firefox which is much more direct.

These screenshots are from "403" pages - these appear when you try to view a page that requires a login and you haven't supplied the right details (more ...)

Firefox tells you how it is!
