password selection formulas

found on memebase

i can't decide which is worse: using "password" as your password, or using a password selection formula so simple that the next password is "password2".

i don't think people who give out password advice (like using password selection formulas) take these kinds of degenerate cases into account; which is a shame, because the info they're passing on definitely degenerates on it's trip into the user's head.
