No more pointless password requirements

This is exciting news and a very smart, practical move by the team at NIST.  Length of passwords trumps complexity in most situations when an end user is left to his or her own devices.  I am glad to see these changes and encourage all administrators and IT security professionals to use these changes as an opportunity to better educate end users in the proper set up and usage of passwords.
