too high security

found on i raff i ruse

while complex passwords certainly help keep things secure, there is also certainly a point of diminishing returns where additional complexity does more to thwart you than it would an attacker. a 100 character password isn't going to stop any more attackers than a 50 character password would, but it's at least two times the nightmare to try and enter it properly.
