I agree. Having to have ten characters was annoying, and seems rather pointless seeing as many password-stealers use methods other than brute-force anyway.

To be fair, having a long/strict password also helps disable many of those methods
-You're less likely to pick an easy-to-guess password (password, 12345)
-You're less likely to use the same password in multiple places (so that hackers can't break into your e-mail after breaking into the GMC, etc)

That being said, the new restrictions do seem a bit overboard, and could be slackened slightly. (Although I'm pretty sure they're in place to prevent the hacks that plagued the old GMC)

This isn't going to change, sorry. It's part of our security measures and isn't negociable.
