For your convenience

Please choose a password.

Your password must be between 8 and 14 characters long. It must contain at least one letter, one number and one symbol. Symbols may not include !@$&% or ?

Letters may not include vowels, x, y or z (except in the state of Missouri, where y is permitted).

Numbers may not be prime numbers or numbers in a regular sequence (1234) or a Fibonnaci sequence. If you do not know what a Fibonnaci sequence is perhaps you should seek further education.

You may not use your name, the name of anyone in your extended family, or the name of a pet, past or present.

Clever words using numbers as letters (C13V3R) are not allowed. Names of popular entertainers, bands, cities, towns, states or streets are not allowed. Addresses, past or present are prohibited.

Passwords may not match any other password you have for anything else. Please make your password easy to remember, and do not write it down.

Thank you.

does WTF work? Or FU? I have to write down all my passwords next to the name of the website it goes to. Or ask the website for an email of my password each time I log on.

So funny. Nothing worse than trying to keep the same password for things and then having conflicting rules at differnt places! ARG! I personally like gandhi's idea. WTF works for me.

And THANK YOU for the vote on Minti. I'm sure it can only help my chances. I'm crossing my fingers!!

Gosh, there are passwords for everything these days, aren't there?! I use the same one over and over or else I'd forget them all.

BTW, I also like WTF. It has a nice ring to it.

They're just getting pickier and pickier, man.

The other day I was trying to choose a screen name for a popular online moms community (meaning the community is popular, not the "online moms" within it) and dang if I didn't keep getting shot down. "'Totally random phrase' has already been selected. Please try again."
