    What?

    Use a unique strong password for each site and you'll be fine.

    Depends. I've seen some people use some really bad passwords before.

    I suppose that's why they invented password managers.

    Re: Password Crazy

    I had to fix so many systems where someone thought it was really kewl to use a 4 character password.

    Ubuntu is one of the assinine distros that doesn't enforce proper password length...

    Re: Password Crazy

    What drives me nuts is when something demands that I use upper & lower case plus numbers or symbols in a password. And then they're supposed to get changed periodically. It's just not possible to remember them all.

    So, yes, I use some silly passwords and I'm using the same ones at a couple places.

    Several different distro's I have tried have some indications of password strength without enforcing specific requirements on the end-user.

    *fixed that for you
