It only makes it easier to crack...

When a website asks for a password with at least 1 capital letter, most people tend to make it the first letter in their pasword...

And if people are forced to also use at least one or two numbers, you can be allmost sure they put those at the end...

Maybe it's time to educate people about password strength again...
