Lately, though, it seems that even these "who cares" sites have gone security happy and insist on "strong" passwords. Each seems to have its own set of rules; this one won't allow punctuation, that one *demands* it. What's barely long enough to satisfy one set of requirements is too long for another. Some ignore case, others demand mixed case passwords.
I haven't met many of those, and if I do I'm inclined to say (to myself): Well, bugger that for a lark. But most just ask for 6–15 characters, which is reasonable.
