It's completely retarded. It only induces people to choose weak
Must contain a capital? Okay, capitalize the dictionary word.
Must contain a digit? Okay, stick a one on it, or replace an o with 0.

There should be a choice: numbers and glyphs, or make it longer.
I'd rather type a password phrase with multiple words and spaces.
