It's 2016 and idiots still use '123456' as their password

Hm. Google has "about 4,690 results (0.47 seconds) " on that one. Who is t5r4e3w2q1?

Anyway, password faults sound great, but, since people now use multiple devices (smartphone, laptop, home PC, work PC/laptop), and want to access all their accounts from each, to update their facebook pages and tweets with useless information, read their emails, do some banking, this is never going to work.

I just rely on Microsoft Lync to screw up my password randomly and lock me out, so I have to reset it it so frequently I'm secure no matter how many billions of guesses a second you throw at me.
