Complex password, simple user Id
We read so much about the importance of complex passwords. However I wonder how many times user IDs such as John.Smith, jsmith, user2, training, sysadmin and administrator are used. Making user IDs more complex but still meaningful will help increase security. Especially for sysadmins. I've long advocated this, but it is rarely mentioned.

Re: I'm totally fed up with swearing ...
Khaptain, I'm quite prepared for it here On El Reg but look at current comments On CNN after a report on a 'friend'who have away a GI's dog while he was on active service. The comments are pitiful, whoever was in the right. If aliens landed and saw how we use the web they'd leave for another 10,000 years.
