one of the most annoying things on the internet

Monster is adding new security precautions to help protect your account information. To assist with this effort, please update your password below. Thank you!

New Password: 8 - 20 characters (use at least 1 letter, and 1 number/symbol other than ` @ & - “ <)

I really hate when they want you to make a new password, but they freaking LIMIT the characters you can use, it just so happens that I might use the crap they dismiss. You throw a password with 4 different types of things in it and its like LOL NOT SECURE.

whatever.

uta changed their policy... It has to be atleast 8 characters, includes atleast three character classes, can't be a word from the dictionary, and it has to be different from the last 6 passwords. Plus they make you change your password like every 6 weeks.

A lot of the manufacturers I work with do this and it bugs the shit out of me, mostly because I don't think any of their "confidential" info is anything anybody would be trying to hack or steal. It's annoying as can be.

I dont mind the changing of my password every so often, its the fact that they jew you out of 6 or hell in some cases ALL special characters and they call it 'secure'.

New Password: HeReiSmyVerYsecUrePAssWoRd!

INVALID please do not use: !#@%^#$%#$&^*&%(*(';]'../`

oh well things could be worse, at least they aren't trying to give me a refurbished password.

ive sent some NASTY emails to the TCU.edu folks about their stupid ass password system. I was getting to the point i was about to snap my keyboard in half, because nothing, NOTHING i would enter would be accepted.

Fucking retarded. Its my god damn information, ill decide if i want jimmy the average hacker douche or fucking MI-6 needed to crack it.
