Oh come on!

I haven't gone postal on anyone for a while and then this caught my eye. 

Look Don, just because some first level extranet help desk person suggests that maybe you use some kind of memonic for your complex passwords does not mean that they are advocating poor security practices. 

You gave an example of a password you wanted to use as “qKa5$KucX#lD”.  Correct me if I am mistaken but I'm almost certain you don't memorize a password like that.  And if you're even remotely similar to the rest of us, you probably have many usernames and passwords which makes it even more likely that you don't memorize them all.  That means you record them somewhere which is arguably worse that having a weak password.

Nothing anyone does is ever fully secure.  I mean, take a look at the problem they're having in France right now involving the Clearstream bank in Luxembourg. 

Just pray that nothing you've ever written comes under the level of scrutiny as do Microsoft's products. 

Get a friggin' life already.
