I hate having to come up with new passwords.|
Getting blind-sided by a new password requirement upon a requested reboot of the computer is double cranky-making.
And having the new password be "rejected by the server, because it does not meet the requirements", with no indication whatsoever of what those requirements might be?
Double cranky with extra cranky on top and a side order of incandescent fury.

That sucks re policy.
N arg shyy bs Wryyb! is secure, a pun, and accepted by almost every gov't and corporate system.
I've gotten to the point that I automatically insert a punctuation mark, a number and a capital letter whenever I have to do a new "strong" password.
Same word system, just C0mpl1cat3d!
But some systems can't handle the punctuation and some require it. God, I hate password requirements. Especially when the password can only be 8 characters or something stupidly short like that.
What I especially loathe are websites that want deep cryptographic security for something I will hardly ever use...
Man, if I knew that turning Beemer into a super-powered human with lightning-breath only required me making him come up with a new password, I would have tried asking him for one all the time! SUPER BEEMER!!!!
That being said, yes, I hate new passwords - I should probably switch them out more often, though.
No, Perlick! He's a super-VILLAIN! Aaaaaughhh!
Hello! I am a MAD SCIENTIST, thank you very much! There's an important distinction there.
Really, it's the disruption of it. "Come up with something obscure but memorable" is no big deal if I have advance notice for mulling.
"Come up with something obscure but memorable, RIGHT NOW, and you can't do anything until you do," is what sparks the lightning generator.
Definitely one of the plagues of our era.
Poetry, acronyms, and a measured dose of l33tspeak. That's all you need.
