Re: Sometimes I can't use a long password

This is my biggest annoyance. Restricted password length and not dealing with certain characters such as speech marks, semi-colons etc. It is hit and miss if the system will allow spaces in the password too.

However, knowing which characters are not allowed can help you decide if the site is vunerable to SQL injection attacks.
