Forcing me to change password every 3 months

This isn't a bank website for christ's sake. We don't need super top secret security here folks.

Turn off this stupid requirement please.

Bottom line - you do not have to change the password, you can just re-enter the same password.

Oh, so we don't actually have to change our passwords and this requirement is serving no benefit but to annoy the crap out of us. Got it.

I've visited tons of forums and have many accounts, none of them have this kind of requirement, there must be something very special about this one.

Or I should add, I'd be annoyed but I haven't logged in enough to have them do it to me yet. It IS why I'm not an Ifish member anymore. They got hacked and wanted everyone to do new, longer, improved passwords. My familiar ones didn't work do I walked away. Anyone want to hear about my crabbing trip last weekend? It involved the truck, had to use 4wd to get the boat out of the bay.

I admit it annoyed me as well but I'm over it now, or until the next time I have to do it.


<<I used to own 2 website/forums which I sold but I never made my people do it, but rules are rules.

I'm a Network Admin for a college, and I'm used to people whining for this very reason...
