Natural selection I say. People smart enough to have good passwords are less likely to get hacked- they are not worth the effort as it would be easier to hack someone dumber.

Stupid Sheep. Alpha numberic, upper and lower case.

I have to suffer through phone calls from people who want my personal information everyday, just so I can conduct my business. This is because of people who steal identities from the idiot sheep who can't be troubled to remember not to use little Suzy's name as the password on your bank account.

You get what you deserve, and I have to pay for it. Wasted time on the phone giving information, and wasted money on the taxes I pay because of the laws that get passed, because you idiots can't come up with a more secure password.

Lazy stupid idiot sheep.

3. Never trust a 3rd party with your important passwords (webmail, banking, medical etc.)
I just used ninite to install apps after installing win7 last night. One of the apps to choose from was KeyPass. Would that be considered a "3rd party" I'm not supposed to trust or just a tool to store passwords that is better than a list in a wallet?

I think that the numbers is 'cause are the fast access in the keyboard. But also some people are a little idiots, all the accounts have recomendations for the password, if they don't read this, is their fault.

President Skroob: Did it work? Where's the king?
Dark Helmet: It worked, sir. We have the combination.
President Skroob: Great. Now we can take every last breath of fresh air from Planet Druidia. What's the combination?
Colonel Sandurz: 1-2-3-4-5
President Skroob: 1-2-3-4-5?
Colonel Sandurz: Yes!
President Skroob: That's amazing. I've got the same combination on my luggage.
Dark Helmet, Colonel Sandurz: [looks at each other]

[citation][nom]haunted one[/nom]123456 and qwerty? I'm not surprised that 1/5 th of Americans can't pinpoint the US on a world map.[/citation]

That is actually not a fact. Please do not put all Americans in the same pot as this teen beauty pagent participant. While I find it sad that the numbers were not 100%, they certainly were not what you are stating.

"Miss South Carolina Teen USA was asked recently why one in five Americans can't find the United States on a map. Unfortunately, that statistic is entirely inaccurate. According to the recent National Geographic-Roper Public Affairs 2006 Geographic Literacy Study, “Nearly all (94%) young Americans can find the United States on the world map, and Canada (92%) and Mexico (88%) are nearly as familiar.” The judges of Miss Teen USA should have gotten their facts straight! Only three in fifty Americans can't find the U.S. on a world map."

I love having to change my password at work every 90 days. It's awesome. And I can't reuse them either! I have about 20 different passwords I have to remember as a result.

And those passwords are pathetic.

Oh all you people are SOOO smart. did you ever think that maybe there are lots of passwords for things that people don't really need or want a password for? And for these things(especially if there are several people using the same account) people intentionally invent really dumb passwords?

I usually use an 8-character mixed password that was randomly generated by an automated system; different ones for different things, or at least different types of things.
