The thing that really gets me bothered is that these “smart password policies” that everyone totes about means nothing.  You want people to remember all these crazy characters that they refuse to do, or they use a password keeper of some form.

Just tell people to use phrases.  Sure, through in random characters instead of spaces, but this still makes it more difficult to brute force than running a password dump against John the Ripper.
