On Passwords

How to Build Better Passwords Without Losing Your Mind | PCWorld: "Make sure your passphrase is at least eight characters and avoid obviously memorable topics like proper names, birthdays, and hometowns. You should also avoid picking a single word and changing some of its characters to symbols--hacker tools are sophisticated enough to overcome that trick. Go for a passphrase--multiple words strung together--rather than a password; this makes it harder for hackers working to crack your password by trying every word in the dictionary. "

Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
