We get lectured by websites to come up with strong passwords, only to have your password stolen anyway due to bad security on their end.

@ShowerThoughts how else will they collect amazing strong passwords!

@ShowerThoughts
Well, the "strong" password is only necessary for the case when the site's password database went public. So what they're basically saying is "don't trust us on this!", and when they restrict the space of acceptable passwords they say "we don't even know what a 'strong' password is".

@ShowerThoughts a better advice would be:
Use unique passwords.
Do not use the same or similar passwords on different websites.

And one way to achieve that is using a password manager.
