Please do *not* encourage people to enter their passwords on random
websites. It was already a bad idea when Microsoft did this, and unlike
good Whisky, the idea didn't get better with time.

You obviously didn't read the disclaimer at the top of the page where it
clearly states "In fact, I recommend that you *don't* use real passwords."

Now will that stop anybody... no probably not... but he did at least take it
into consideration.

I personally find the app extremely useful and have modified our password
rule set slightly because of its results based on some testing of our
password patterns (which I believe is the entire point of what Thor was
attempting to accomplish with this app).

Warm regards,

Tom Walsh
