Default Why do I need to change password every 6 months ?

I like this site, I like it a lot but,why would you make me go through the rigmarole
of new password every 6 months....I don't get it.

Took me a year to bother to log in last time,are we going for we are a exclusive group of people dollar ? it helps keep the rif raf out ?

Dontgeddit.

I've had to change mine multiple times due to the 6 month rule.

I don’t think I’ve ever had to change mine.

I think I have had to 'change' mine but I don't think it is every 6 months. I believe you can just use the same password as well.

My new method is to return a temporary password and just continue to use it until it expires. Save the email in case your browser resets or doesn't remember the password any longer.

It would be nice if we could reuse old passwords tho! Cycle through...
