New password rules are rediculous!!!!
I am sorry but these new password rules are driving me absolutely nuts!
Must be at least 10 characters
Must contain lower-case characters
Must contain upper-case characters
Must contain numbers
Must contain symbols
Even banks, brokerages, and credit card companies don't have these strict requirements! This is a forum, even if someone guesses our password what can they do - verbally abuse someone and make it look like someone else wrote it? I realize there has been a security breach, however that did not occur because of easier password rules and no matter how complex you make the passwords hackers will get the passwords again (even these ridiculously complex ones) if they breach the server again. It makes no sense, every time I have to log back in I have to dig around for 10 mins to find the password because it is RIDICULOUSLY difficult.
This is a forum, for a majority of us there is nothing to steal here. If anything these new rules may cause more harm, some people may be inclined to use banking passwords because otherwise they will never remember the password here, or they may never change the assigned password do to the complexity of the required password. Perhaps I am the only one who feels this way?
So cheetahs are supposedly the fastest four legged animals? PFFFFFT!!!
