Usually good for a few minutes back and forth dialogue about it not being obvious.

A lousy system
To what extent are stolen passwords even a meaningful threat? Most systems don't hand out shadow files to the public and don't allow large numbers of quick guesses. Russian gangs setting up zombie networks aren't going to know my cat or my wife's name or similar "easy to guess" choices.

Forcing regular password changes sounds good, but causes endless problems with people who only use systems occasionally, or have been away.

And as I've mentioned multiple times, software that 'remembers' your passwords for you is EVIL. DOUBLY ABSOLUTE EVIL for browser password caches.

I had a password of @((#aM12_)g!1tty9 and it was broken. So consider what your password is and how difficult it is or how easy.
