Password reuse is going to be rampant

Since there are arbitrary rules on password expiration and since there are rate limits, timeouts and lockouts if I use the wrong password, I simply found it easiest to follow the shortest expiration and change all my passwords on that date. And I change all passwords to the same one. Seriously, if any of them are cracked, there would be potential for high damage anyway, so why bother?
