Some "hard" passwords are pretty easy ...

ji32k7au4a83 would seem to be a pretty secure password.  It seems random.  But, if it's random, why do so many people use the same "random" password?

 

It isn't random.  It's a kind of translation/transliteration of "my password."  In Mandarin.

 

I'm changing all my passwords to "y-may eally-ray ard-hay assword-pay."

 

(Will that trip the dread "community" pr0n filter?)

Surely there is a rainbow table somewhere that is filled with pig-Latin Hashes....

You mean you take all the high order bits off the block, and then add them at the
end, terminating with a "01"?
