    I'm surprised WELCOME isn't on that list. IT people used to use it all the time.

    I have fairly strong passwords, but I cannot stand the stupid constraints some websites put on them.

    "Password must be between 6 and 8 characters, cannot contain spaces or special symbols, and cannot have any repeating characters."

    Take your stupid rules and piss off!

    Thank you, stupid IT people, for forcing me to make my passwords less secure than if you'd allowed me to pick them myself.

    Nope, didn't make the list, but having "password" as your password is funny.

    My bank makes me change passwords every 3 months.

    I have a few 'standard' passwords that meet most criteria, but I hate when the constraints still make me modify them.
