I wanted to set up a StackExchange openID. But it insists on a password that contains 3 from the 4: lowercase, uppercase, special character and numeral. I have only two passwords across multiple sites. I always forget passwords with special rules. Out of a few services which insists on this, I only use Delicious. But I had to click the "forgot password?" the first few weeks.
I decided to stick to Google as the ID provider as I would not forget that password. Please remove the rule

Excellent compromise. Google is a fine provider. I wish you happiness in your future adventures together.

I agree - why can't someone use a passphrase?
How insecure is this password: my password is all lowercase
