BCSB is not important enough for me to remember the password for; sites like this I just save them all to my browser. If anyone steals my laptop, ensuring the data integrity of this forum will be very low on my list.
This site seems like it's lost a large amount of audience already , forcing password changes will only make it worse imo .

Funny story. I worked at a place with a 90 day password reset policy. I left the place with a password of Password#13 after a little more than three years. No one figured out my previous 12 passwords, so that strategy is validated and secure. I am glad I left that place.
Does this new policy have anything to do with - http://jalopnik.com/45-million-accou...r-f-1782030203 ?
A good piece of advice, to help in remembering the more complex password, is to do a phrase instead of just randomly adding in the extra requirements.
That will stick in your in your mind better.
"Give a man a gun, he can rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he can rob the world"
If you are going to jail for theft, you just didn't steal enough money.
so if we change our password now, are we going to have to change it again on the forced reset?
To those resistant to this change, you should learn to accept this. It's going to happen more and more. Heck, I even change my bank and credit card pins every 6 months, especially after major shopping holidays.

Their system was compromised and they grabbed user data for us and thousands of others. We cleared our part of the breach and went this route to further security. This is also in place as many members on the internet use the same or similar passwords across all things they use.
These tech blogs don't ever get the full story, there just have hearsay and run with and embellish it.
We cannot go into detail at the moment as it is being dealt with on a legal level.
It is a good policy to have, as I have known many people who use 1 password for all things. Their eyes get opened pretty quickly after a breach of their information.
Soooo, how long had you known this site was compromised and your member's information stolen before you decided to let us know about it?
