At one workplace I used a v.inappropriate word as my password.

One day we had problems and the IT dude needed my password. "OH NOES!" I thought.

But because I have MAD THINKING-ON-MY-FEET SKILLZ I slowly spelled the password as he typed, adding random pauses at non syllable breaks.

Then he bursts out laughing.

davidphogan: Smeggy Smurf: N*Bong*farkedmydaughter would make a good password for those assholes

I know what I'm changing my password to.

Nobody is going to guess it.  They'll have to brute force it over the next few million years.  Or hit you over the head with a $5 wrench.

That's what they get for outsourcing their IT.

As a member of the High Council of Geeks- and I'm a UNIX SysAdmin who, in 2013, still uses vi on a daily basis- let me say this to my brethren who enforce password security:

You can have complex passwords, with lots of capitals, numbers, and special characters. You can have passwords that don't repeat characters when the user changes them, so "PAssword02" isn't followed by "PAssword03". You can have passwords that aren't written on post-it notes, and kept either on the monitor, the bottom of the keyboard, or in the top right-hand desk drawer. You can have passwords that need to change every 120 days.

You get one of these. Choose, and choose wisely. If you try for two of these, over half of your user base won't comply. All four, and I might not comply, simply out of spite. There's got to be a balance between security and functionality.

King Something: Password security is as easy as 1-2-3-4-5.

That sounds like a password some idiot would put on their luggage.
