Alright Admin Retards,
 
1: Your 'change password every 45 days' policy is nonsense.
Having hoards of mouth breathers change their password from '123' to '456' every 45 days isn't making your network more secure. They're using easy passwords because remembering a new complex password every few weeks is nonsense.
 
2: Your 'cannot use same password for at least 10 iterations' is nonsense.
This provides absolutely NO benefit to network security and if you think it does you should be terminated - and no, I don't mean your job.
 
You Nazi administrators out there that set up these stupid policies are doing absolutely NOTHING to secure your networks with these policies. While I agree with enforcing complex passwords these other extraneous policies are nothing but grief and do absolutely nothing. PRO TIP: Actually read up on your job, learn real techniques, and leave the 'appearance of security' to posers like the TSA.
 
It's BS like this that makes me want to leave IT altogether.
