    Who does this? I mean, you'd have a better password stringing two of these "passwords" together and adding an underscore between them. I heard people saying that using "123456" has to be a new record for terrible. I disagree. Nothing gets worse than "admin", because it means you didn't even make an attempt. I'll go right ahead and be that mean..if you make your passwords this simple, you deserve what you get.

    Passwords are difficult to rein in. After years of complicated password regimes I finally went to Bruce Schneier encrypted Password Safe with a secure master password of course. The beauty is you can set 30 digit complex passwords requirements if you like. Pretty cool.

    That is why I prefer openid login, especially FB login, you do not need to register and remember dozens of passwords on number of meaningless websites.
