I fight technology - technology always wins

(Please hum the title above to the tune of "I fight authority, authority always wins" as you continue reading)

Password5 (must have between 6-8 characters--this has 9)

psword5 (must have a capital letter and symbol)

Password#5 (what part did you not understand about needing it to be between 6-8 characters?)

Asswo#5 (this might actually work.)

“We’re sorry. That password is taken. Please select another.”

How's this for a password?

Or better yet. About a month after you finally select and remember a password you get this message,

“Your password has expired. Please create new password.”

Ha ha! I especially love it when they don't TELL you the rules until you violate them. And the tone is always a little huffy and impatient, like I should have known.
