    The one that was mailed to you would have been the one that you set. We do not modify it. If you want a different password and are having issues, PM me and I"ll change it manually.

    It is highly unlikely that anyone is changing your password. Perhaps, it might be good to double check what is being input.

    Alternatively, if you PM me your preferred password, I can change it and we can give this another try.

    longer password works better:
    Code:
    [justina@localhost ~]$ head -c21 /dev/urandom | base64
    ... for a 28-character password with full 168 bits of entropy

    You're the one who complained and now seem just fine with this. Since this makes no sense at all, thread closed, Justin.
