SyteLine Passwords

Keeping track of all the passwords you use on all the various websites you visit can be a real pain.  Especially with all the rules about how complex the password must be so someone can't guess it or a random generator can't figure it out very easily.    Some of our customers do regular audits of passwords used in SyteLine and try to make sure they are changed every 3-6 months and they are in line with company complexity rules.  SyteLine can help enforce these complexity rules, but not as complex as this situation.

During a recent password audit, a user was to found using the following password: 

                        "MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofySacramento"

Support:  Why do you have such a long password?
 
User:       I was told that it had to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital
