look. i know how to make a good password. i know what i'm doing.

@lynnesbian Extended ASCII for when you want your password to be a picture

@lynnesbian This is actually a fantastic way to make a secure but memorable password when it's allowed

@socalledunitedstates @lynnesbian at some point a dictionary attack of combinations of words becomes way way way smaller than numcharspossible^numchars and attackers use multiple approaches when brute forcing hashes. especially if you limit the words to grammatically correct sequences of words, or, if such passwords were to be common, extrapolated variations of known passwords of that type.

plus hash collisions are generally a very real threat

@lynnesbian the most secure password is password backwards because nobody ever thinks about typing with their keyboard upside down.
