strong passwords
By , for WP 3.8

For this As of WordPress 3.7, the password strength meter is based on the Dropbox "zxcvbn" script.

I found this script impossible to guess a strong password correctly. Really defeats the purpose of password security when you have to write it down and post it on the monitor to be efficent. A shorter password I could remember.

But what about emailing passwords...
By , for WP 3.7.1

Maybe I'm missing something?

I go to great effort to come up with a password more complex than I've ever created before (ended up having roboform generate it for me, a first, despite having over 500 logins).

And then there's the checkbox: Mail this password to user...

Oh, really?! Well, I guess it forces me to change the password when I log in. hmmm, no.

So what use is this super complex password system that is bound to frustrate the average user when it can be emailed...in the clear...over the internets?
