Obligatory xkcd reference

The story on the BBC website repeats the usual tosh about what constitutes a strong password. I don't understand why these "experts" don't look at xkcd for real advice.

As it says there "Through 20 years of effort, we've successfully trained everyone to use passwords that are hard for humans to remember, but easy for computers to guess"
