Ok, really. LEARN TO SPELL before asking for help. If you cannot get your problem across to the people whom you want to help, then use google. Really, we cannot help you if you cannot ask.

This is what I am talking about:
OMGOMG!!!!!111!!! Halp Me NOW! I cannot Linus my screen IS BLACK! OMG My hard drive broke my WINDERZ! M$ IS trying to Make me go to teh linuz!Halp Nowz!

Now really, that is not real, but it resembles so many posts on different message boards...

Why is it that so many websites (some hosted for open-source projects), refuse members to use strong passwords? By definition, any password which has nonalphanumeric characters, is more secure than those which don't.

So I find it particularly odd, that systems touting security, are themselves insecure for their primary audience. It's not like the software doesn't exist to allow maximum security for the creation of passwords. So what's the motivation for not implementing that security...
