Password requirements kill me

Passwords are just plain stupid. If a hacker wants to break into your account they will find a way regardless of your password. This recent CNN article hilariously spells out 123456 as this year’s most popular password. The top comment in the thread captures the frustration of creating a password that matches the proper requirements:

"cabbage"

Password must contain more than seven letters.

"cabbages"

Password must contain a numeric value.

"7cabbages"

Password must contain a capital letter.

"7Cabbages"

Password must contain a symbol.

"7f*ckingCabbages"

So much pain.
