Does enforcing strong passwords actually create strong passwords or is its primary benefit just creating awareness of them? I can't imagine the kind of person who used to use "pass" is going to wind up the better for the recent enforcement that has been spreading. I need eight characters? "password" I need capitals and lowercase? "Password" I need a number now? "Password1" Goddamn! I need a special character now! "FuckYOU1!!!" IT WONT LET ME REPEAT THREE CHARACTERS! AUGH! FIRST OBAMA TAXES AND NOW THIS! Hmmmm. Maybe strong password enforcement is a form of internet natual selection.
