Lesson: use strong passwords that don't involve words at all. That won't have a huge effect on brute-forcing given today's GPUs, but it makes a dictionary-based brute-force impossible.
"Long passwords is a promising user authentication mechanism."
I'm not sure, but if I were to write a report based around grammar, I'd probably try to perfect its wording (yes - I realize most of these reports typically have odd-sounding statements).
I shouldn't be surprised anymore by the number of people I encounter who use password123, but it still stuns me every time.
Tip for the Day: Passwords are like underwear, you should, uh, wash them or something.

LOL! It's like taking a girl you don't know well into the HotTub while the night is young,...............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Here is a thought, keep the password salts/hashes/stuff secure so that attackers cannot try 14 billion attacks per second on them and there is no issue.
Try a pwd more than 5 times and *BAM* account locked.
The problem with all these attacks and password breaking is that somehow the authentication part of the passwords are somehow easily obtainable, how does it make sense to put a titanium lock on a chickenwire gate?
This report is hilarious, on multiple levels.
