You are morons, the “not strong enough” password in question was:
Worst of all, journals.sagepub.com DOES not accept the same password as study.sagepub.com. It only accepts 20 chars long passwords. 1) Why that, if you are storing my full-length password in cleartext you are doing something wrong! 2) If you only want 20 chars make your webform only accept 20 chars, that saves you and me time.
