The account screens more or less tells me that in the nearby future, I have to ‘change my password due to the new policy’.

I AREADY DID THAT STRAIGT AWAY WHEN YOU CAME OUT WITH THE SILLY COMIC!

Why am I forced to change my password from something good that I can also remember well, just because I was too quick to listen to your concerns?

I am sorry for the inconvenience. One reason this might be happening is that someone acquired the password and it has recently be published on a “known, compromised password list.” (And yes, such things do exist!)

If you know that changing the password is recommended, and you know we’re not asking that for frivolous reasons, then I’m sure you’ll feel better about choosing a new password, since your security can only be enhanced with that change.
