Either my name, my password or my soul is invalid – but which?

Re: Idiot password checkers

Different cases are easy to deal with - You naturally put a capital for a name or first word of phrase or sentence and rest lower case. You can include a number in the phrase or a word that sounds like a number and there are some symbols that can be substituted for words - so you could take the correct horse battery staple" and turn it into "correct horse and battery free staple" which becomes "Correcthorse&battery3staple" which I find easy to remember and type and still meets the stupid password rules (unless they limit length too short)
